Magnitude 4.8 earthquake strikes near Bandipura, Bandipora, Kashmir,
An intermediate to deep magnitude 4.8 earthquake was reported early evening near Bandipura, Bandipora, Kashmir, India.

According to India's National Center for Seismology (NCS), the quake hit on Monday, December 27th, 2021, at 6:37 pm local time at an intermediate to considerable depth of 212 km. 

The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. 

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.

Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Skardu (pop. 2,100) located 76 km from the epicenter, Gilgit (pop. 10,400) 86 km away, Gilgit (pop. 10,400) 86 km away, and Bandipura (pop. 32,000) 95 km away.
