A magnitude 4.2 earthquake near Jurado, Departamento del Choco, Colombia, was reported only 14 minutes ago by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter early morning on Thursday, November 18th, 2021, at 1:58 am 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.
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 Jurado (pop. 2,400) located 31 km from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Riosucio (pop. 7,200) located 57 km from the epicenter, and Vigia del Fuerte (pop. 4,600) 84 km away.
