A magnitude 3.0 earthquake near Dyersburg, Dyer County, Tennessee, USA, was reported only 10 minutes ago by the United States Geological Survey, considered the key international and national agency that monitors seismic activity in the US. The earthquake occurred at a shallow depth of 7 miles beneath the epicenter late at night on Sunday, September 12th, 2021, at 11:04 pm local time. 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 3.0 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Ridgely (pop. 1,700) located 5 miles from the epicenter, Tiptonville (pop. 4,400) 10 miles away, Newbern (pop. 3,300) 12 miles away, Caruthersville (pop. 5,900) 15 miles away, and Dyersburg (pop. 16,800) 15 miles away. In Englewood (pop. 1,600, 16 miles away), and Union City (pop. 10,600, 23 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
