Very strong but very deep earthquake in Russia / China / North Korea region
This very deep earthquake is caused by the subduction of Pacific Plate under Eurasian Plate (which also causes most of the earthquake activity around Japan). Due to the depth, any damage in one of the mentioned countries can be excluded.
Update: Very deep earthquakes like this are usually felt in a wide area (with low intensity). In this case, large towns like Vladiwostok are in this area. But so far we did not get any felt reports. If you think you felt it, please tell us. The earthquake may have been felt (theoretically) by nearly 10 million people as a very weak to weak shaking.
