An earthquake of magnitude 3.1 occurred early afternoon on Wednesday 3 February 2021 at 2:27 pm local time near McAlester, Pittsburg County, Oklahoma, USA, as reported by the United States Geological Survey (USGS).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a shallow depth of 6.2 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 3.1 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Quinton (pop. 1000) located 0 miles from the epicenter, and Wilburton (pop. 2,700) 14 miles away. In McAlester (pop. 18,300, 26 miles away), and Muskogee (pop. 38,500, 43 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
