5.2 quake 1 Dec 3:32 pm (GMT -8)
Just 9 minutes ago, a 5.2-magnitude earthquake struck near Mina, Nevada. The tremor was recorded early afternoon on Tuesday 1 December 2020 at 3.32 pm local time, at a shallow depth of 6.3 miles below the surface.
The event was filed by the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the first seismological agency to report it.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc. In Mina (pop. 160) located 15 miles from the epicenter, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Benton (pop. 280) located 33 miles from the epicenter, Hawthorne (pop. 3,300) 39 miles away, Goldfield (pop. 270) 55 miles away, West Bishop (pop. 2,600) 60 miles away, Mammoth Lakes (pop. 7,900) 62 miles away, and June Lake (pop. 630) 62 miles away.
