An earthquake of magnitude 3.1 occurred early afternoon on Friday 4 December 2020 at 2.18 pm local time near Anchorage, Anchorage County, Alaska, USA, as reported by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a moderately shallow depth of 34 miles. 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.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Susitna (pop. 18, 9 miles away), Big Lake (pop. 3,400, 26 miles away), Willow (pop. 2,100, 30 miles away), Anchorage (pop. 298,700, 32 miles away), Knik-Fairview (pop. 14,900, 37 miles away), Elmendorf Air Force Base (pop. 6,600, 38 miles away), Meadow Lakes (pop. 7,600, 39 miles away), Eagle River (pop. 24,800, 39 miles away), and Eagle River (pop. 24,800, 39 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
