The German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported a magnitude 4.1 quake in Poland near Głogow, Lower Silesia, only 8 minutes ago. The earthquake hit early afternoon on Wednesday 16 June 2021 at 3:22 pm local time at a shallow depth of 10 km. 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 4.0 earthquake.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc.
In Grębocice (pop. 1,500) located 3 km from the epicenter, and Głogow (pop. 68,500) 6 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Polkowice (pop. 21,600) located 14 km from the epicenter, Lubin (pop. 77,500) 25 km away, and Nowa Sol (pop. 40,400) 35 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Leszno (pop. 63,600) located 39 km from the epicenter, Legnica (pop. 106,000) 46 km away, Bolesławiec (pop. 40,700) 55 km away, and Breslavia (pop. 634,900) 85 km away.
