Mon, 19 Oct 2020, 09:22
09:22 AM | BY: EARTHQUAKEMONITOR
A magnitude 5.0 earthquake was reported only 21 minutes ago ago by the USGS agency, considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity in the this region. The earthquake occurred at very shallow depth of 7.1 km (4.4 mi) beneath the epicenter. The magnitude could be revised within the next few minutes as the agency updates and refines its calcuations, or as other agencies issue their report.
