A shallow magnitude 3.5 earthquake hit near Italy's famous Garda lake on Monday, 22 Feb. 2021, at 1:04 pm local time. According to Italy's National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV), the quake occurred at a shallow depth of 12 km. 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 Austria's Central Research Institute for Meterology and Geodynamics in Vienna (ZAMG), which listed it as a magnitude 3.9 earthquake. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the Swiss Seismological Service (SED) at magnitude 3.7, and the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 3.5.
Within minutes after the quake, we received numerous user reports describing the quake as weak shaking, especially from the town of Rovereto (pop. 34,200) located 13 km from the epicenter. Based on the feedback it appears the quake could be felt within a radius of 35 km around the epicenter.
There are no reports of damages.
If you felt it, report it through our site or app right now!
