3.1 quake NW LA MONGIE.FRA, France, 23 Nov 10.17 am (GMT +1)
IGN reported a magnitude 3.1 quake in France near Campan only 4 minutes ago. The earthquake hit in the morning on Monday 23 November 2020 at 10.17 am local time at a very shallow depth of 5 km. 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 3.1 earthquake as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter. Weak shaking might have been felt in Campan (pop. 1,600) located 10 km from the epicenter, Beaudéan (pop. 400) 11 km away, Asté (pop. 500) 12 km away, Sers (pop. 100) 13 km away, and Asque (pop. 100) 14 km away.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Lourdes (pop. 15,800) located 27 km from the epicenter, Tarbes (pop. 52,100) 35 km away, and Saint-Gaudens (pop. 12,200) 49 km away.
