Weak magnitude 3.5 earthquake at 35 km depth

Small 3.5 quake hits near Perryville, Lake and Peninsula County, Alaska, United States

3.5 quake 6 Feb 4:20 pm (GMT -9)
An earthquake of magnitude 3.5 occurred only 18 minutes ago 47 miles south of Perryville, Alaska, United States, the United States Geological Survey reported.
The quake hit at a moderately shallow depth of 22 miles beneath the epicenter near Perryville, Lake and Peninsula County, Alaska, USA, in the afternoon on Saturday 6 February 2021 at 4:20 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 3.5 earthquake as well.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Perryville (pop. 110, 47 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
