According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the quake hit on Monday, September 13th, 2021, at 7:03 pm local time at an intermediate depth of 109 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. 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.
