3.0 quake 29 Nov 2:11 am (GMT +1)
3.0 quake 29 Nov 2:11 am (GMT +1)
A magnitude 3.0 earthquake near Telgruc-sur-Mer was reported 1 hour and 48 minutes ago by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at a shallow depth of 15 km beneath the epicenter early morning on Sunday 29 November 2020 at 2.11 am local time. Magnitude and other quake parameters can still change in the coming hours as the agency continues to process seismic data.
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 Telgruc-sur-Mer (pop. 1,900) located 3 km from the epicenter.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Argol (pop. 800) located 6 km from the epicenter, Crozon (pop. 8,100) 7 km away, Lanvéoc (pop. 2,300) 8 km away, Saint-Nic (pop. 700) 9 km away, Douarnenez (pop. 16,600) 17 km away, Brest (pop. 144,900) 18 km away, and Quimper (pop. 63,800) 35 km away.
