The 1936 Miyagi earthquake occurred on November 3 at 05:45 local time with a magnitude Ms 7.2, or MJMA 7.4.[1][2] The epicenter was located off the Miyagi Prefecture, Japan. Four people were injured. Building damage was reported.[3] In Isobe (磯部) village, nowadays part of Sōma, Fukushima, a small market building collapsed.[4] A tsunami was recorded.[5]

This was one of the recurring interplate earthquakes at the offshore Miyagi with a recurrence interval of about 37 years.[6] Although not officially named by the Japanese Meteorological Agency, in Japanese, this earthquake is commonly known as 1936年宮城県沖地震 (Sen-kyūhyaku-sanjūroku-nen Miyagi-ken-oki Jishin) or 1936年金華山沖地震 (Sen-kyūhyaku-sanjūroku-nen Kinkasan-oki Jishin).[7]
