3.0 quake 25 Jan 12:52 pm (GMT -8)
A very shallow magnitude 3.0 earthquake was reported around noon near El Centro, Imperial County, California, USA.
According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the quake hit on Monday 25 January 2021 at 12:52 pm local time at a very shallow depth of 2.4 miles. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. 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 3.0 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Seeley (pop. 1,700) located 9 miles from the epicenter, El Centro (pop. 44,000) 16 miles away, Santa Isabel (pop. 29,300) 17 miles away, and Imperial (pop. 17,100) 17 miles away. In Calexico (pop. 40,100, 20 miles away), Mexicali (pop. 689,800, 23 miles away), and Brawley (pop. 25,900, 24 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
