Just 14 minutes ago, a 3.3-magnitude earthquake struck near Tonopah, Nye County, Nevada, USA. The tremor was recorded early morning on Friday 26 March 2021 at 6:34 am local time, at a shallow depth of 6.2 miles below the surface.
The event was filed by the United States Geological Survey, the first seismological agency to report it.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 3.3 as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Mina (pop. 160) located 21 miles from the epicenter. In Tonopah (pop. 2,500, 34 miles away), and Hawthorne (pop. 3,300, 49 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
