Moderate earthquake Tibet, China
Chinese authorities from Zadoi County, Yushu, Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, have send speliazid teams to the epicenter area to assess the situation. It is currently night in China.
The earthquake was not felt as a weak to light shaking in Zadoi County. Zadoi was hit by a 5.1-magnitude quake last week, causing cracks in some houses. Nobody was injured last week.  A tragic M7.1 earthquake shocked Yushu in April 2010, killing 2,698 people and injuring 12,000.

    Useful information to read this daily earthquake list
    This earthquake list covers important earthquakes in the world. If a more detailed page is present, the earthquake line will be linked to the detailed page. The multi-source approach has been setup to compare values as seismology is not an exact science and needs a lot of calculations. The reference for the time zone is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time, also called GMT). Color explanation if we add some details above the list : green color = NOT dangerous for damage or injuries, orange color = MODERATE risk for damage or injuries, red color = CONSIDERABLE risk for damage or injuries
