A very shallow magnitude 3.3 earthquake was reported early morning near the village of Goldfield, Nevada.
3.3 quake 19 miles SE of Goldfield, Nevada, 13 Nov 3.11 am (GMT -8)
According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the quake hit on Friday 13 November 2020 at 3.11 am local time at a very shallow depth of 2.5 miles. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. 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.
Our monitoring service at VolcanoDiscovery identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 3.3 as well.
Despite its relatively small magnitude, the quake could probably be felt very close to the epicenter. Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Goldfield (pop. 300) located 19 miles from the epicenter.
