3.0 quake: 3 Km S Fiastra (MC), Italy, 25 Oct 2020 07:37
Italy's National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) reported a magnitude 3.0 quake in Italy near the village of Pievebovigliana only 15 minutes ago. The earthquake happened in the morning on Sunday 25 October at 8.37 am local time at a shallow depth of 10 km. The magnitude, exact epicenter location and depth of the quake are likely to be revised within the next few hours 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.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt, based on preliminary calculations, include Pievebovigliana (pop. 600) at a distance of 8 km with weak shaking, and Pieve Torina (pop. 1000) at a distance of 9 km with weak shaking. In Perugia (pop. 120,100, 63 km away), and Terni (pop. 97,100, 65 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
