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 3.2 as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Wagram (pop. 340) located 2 miles from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Abilene (pop. 6,600) located 18 miles from the epicenter. In Marion (pop. 1,800, 24 miles away), Junction City (pop. 24,600, 26 miles away), Salina (pop. 47,800, 33 miles away), Manhattan (pop. 56,300, 42 miles away), and Newton (pop. 19,200, 47 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
