#1: 5.0 quake: 76 Km SSW of Alvand, Iran, 24 Oct 2020 11:3434 reports

An earthquake of magnitude 5.0 occurred 31 minutes ago 185 km west of Karaj, Iran, the German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam (GFZ) reported. The quake hit at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter early afternoon on Saturday 24 October at 3.34 pm local time. Magnitude and other quake parameters can still change in the coming hours as the agency continues to process seismic data.
A second report was later issued by GeoAu agency, which listed it as a magnitude 5.2 earthquake. Other agencies reporting the same quake include United States Geological Survey (USGS) at magnitude 5.0, Iranian Seismological Center (IRSC) at magnitude 5.4, and European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 5.0.
Generally quakes of this magnitude are recorded by more than one agency and the results can vary, with subsequent reports that come in after the first one often showing more accuracy.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. In areas close to the epicenter, it has the potential to cause damage to buildings etc.
Towns or cities near the epicenter that are likely to be affected include Abhar (pop. 69,900) at a distance of 59 km with light shaking, Khorramdarreh (pop. 50,500) at a distance of 65 km with light shaking, Pasragad Branch (pop. 787,900) at a distance of 107 km with weak shaking, and Karaj (pop. 1,448,100) at a distance of 185 km with weak shaking.

In Iran bebte heute die Erde mit einer Stärke von 5.0. Laut Angaben des Geoforschungszentrums in Potsdam (GFZ) ereignete sich das Beben am Samstag, dem 24. Oktober, früh nachmittags um 03:34 Lokalzeit 59 km südwestlich von der Stadt Abhar in einer Tiefe von 10 km.
Eine zweite Agentur, GeoAu, gab das Erdbeben abweichend mit einer Stärke von 5.2 an. Andere Quellen zum gleichen Beben sind u.a. United States Geological Survey (USGS) (Stärke 5.0), Iranian Seismological Center (IRSC) (Stärke 5.4)und European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) (Stärke 5.0).
Generell gilt, dass Beben dieser Magnitude normalerweise von mehrere seismischen Beobachtungsstellen erfasst werden. Die Angaben z.B. zu Stärke und Tiefe können dabei von Agentur zu Agentur (meist geringfügig) unterschiedlich sein, v.a. in der Zeit unmittelbar nach dem Beben. In der Folgezeit werden Daten immer weiter und genauer ausgewertet. Neuberechnungen führen so mit der Zeit zu immer verlässlicheren Ergebnissen.
Anhand der vorläufigen seismischen Daten müsste das Beben von vielen Menschen in der Nähe des Epizentrums gespürt worden sein. Nennenswerter Schaden sollte bei dieser Magnitude nicht aufgetreten sein, außer möglicherweise heruntergefallenen Gegenständen, kleinen Rissen u.s.w.
Folgende Orte in der Nähe des Epizentrums wurden wahrscheinlich vom Beben betroffen: Abhar (69,900 Einw. in 59 km Entfernung, mäßige Erschütterungen zu erwarten), Khorramdarreh (50,500 Einw. in 65 km Entfernung, mäßige Erschütterungen), Pasragad Branch (787,900 Einw. in 107 km Entfernung, leichtes Bodenschütteln) und Karaj (1,448,100 Einw. in 185 km Entfernung, leichtes Bodenschütteln).
Wir werden diesen Artikel aktualisieren, wenn es wichtige neue Nachrichten gibt. Wenn Sie sich zum Zeitpunkt des Bebens in der Gegend befunden haben, bitten wir Sie, uns Ihren Erfahrungsbericht über unsere App oder Webseite zuzuschicken. Erfahrungsberichte aus erster Hand sind zum besseren Verständnis und zum Überblick der Lage von unschätzbarem Wert.

#2: 2.7 quake: Greater Los Angeles Area, Calif., USA, 24 Oct 2020 12:279 reports
#3: 4.6 quake: India-bangladesh Border Region, 24 Oct 2020 03:218 reports
#4: 4.5 quake: 22 km W of Foxton, New Zealand, 24 Oct 2020 01:046 reports
#5: 4.8 quake: 11 km E of Nueva Concepción, Guatemala, 23 Oct 2020 18:215 reports
#6: 2.3 quake: 4km NW of Calexico, CA, USA, 24 Oct 2020 03:395 reports
#7: 3.0 quake: 3 Km NNE of Hope, Kansas, USA, 24 Oct 2020 02:493 reports
#8: 3.5 quake: Bosnia And Herzegovina, Bosnia & Herzegovina, 23 Oct 2020 14:082 reports

Just 1 hour and 37 minutes ago in the afternoon on Friday 23 October at 4.08 pm local time, a 3.5-magnitude earthquake struck near the town of Vitina, Bosnia & Herzegovina, with a recorded depth of 5 km below the surface, considered very shallow in seismological terms.
The event was filed by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the first seismological agency to report it.
Our monitoring service at VolcanoDiscovery identified a second report from Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) which listed the quake at magnitude 3.7.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows etc.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt, based on preliminary calculations, include Vitina (pop. 4,400) at a distance of 2 km with very weak shaking. In Ljubuški (pop. 10,000, 8 km away), Split (pop. 176,300, 88 km away), and Sarajevo (pop. 696,700, 98 km away), the quake could probably not be felt.

#9: 4.9 quake: 5 Km Al Sur De Limones, Distrito Barú, Panamá, Panama, 24 Oct 2020 07:292 reports
