4.4 quake 18 Nov 7:30 am (GMT -3)
An earthquake of magnitude 4.4 occurred only 12 minutes ago 109 km west of Aguilar, Argentina, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported.
The quake hit at an intermediate to considerable depth of 209 km beneath the epicenter near Aguilar, Departamento de Humahuaca, Jujuy, Argentina, in the morning on Thursday, November 18th, 2021, at 7:30 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.5 earthquake.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Aguilar (pop. 3,700, 109 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available. If you're in the area, please send us your experience through our reporting mechanism, either online or via our mobile app. This will help us provide more first-hand updates to anyone around the globe who wants to know more about this quake.
