A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.2 earthquake 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 Santiago de Cuba (pop. 555,900) located 41 km from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include El Cobre (pop. 4,800) located 53 km from the epicenter, San Luis (pop. 67,300) 55 km away, Palma Soriano (pop. 102,800) 67 km away, Rio Guayabal de Yateras (pop. 25,800) 81 km away, Sagua de Tanamo (pop. 18,300) 91 km away, and Contramaestre (pop. 70,400) 94 km away.
