An earthquake of magnitude 3.0 occurred in the evening on Tuesday 9 February 2021 at 9:59 pm local time near Ponca City, Kay County, Oklahoma, USA, as reported by the United States Geological Survey.
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a very shallow depth of 3.1 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 2.9.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Nardin (pop. 52) located 5 miles from the epicenter, and Blackwell (pop. 6,900) 11 miles away. In Ponca City (pop. 24,800, 24 miles away), and Enid (pop. 51,800, 41 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
