The earthquake hit in the evening on Wednesday 20 January 2021 at 8:49 pm local time at an intermediate depth of 45 miles.

3.0 quake 20 Jan 8:49 pm (GMT -9)
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 3.0 as well.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Skwentna (pop. 37, 19 miles away), and Susitna North (pop. 1,300, 41 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
