2.6 quake 27 May 5:07 pm (GMT -7)
A magnitude 2.6 earthquake near Orange, Orange County, California, USA, was reported 4 hours ago by the United States Geological Survey, considered the key international and national agency that monitors seismic activity in the US. The earthquake occurred at a very shallow depth of 3.4 miles beneath the epicenter in the afternoon on Thursday 27 May 2021 at 5:07 pm local time. Magnitude and other quake parameters can still change in the coming hours as the agency continues to process seismic data.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 2.6 as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Villa Park (pop. 6,000) located 3 miles from the epicenter, Orange (pop. 141,000) 3 miles away, Placentia (pop. 52,500) 3 miles away, Anaheim (pop. 350,700) 3 miles away, Yorba Linda (pop. 68,000) 5 miles away, Fullerton (pop. 140,800) 5 miles away, Santa Ana (pop. 335,400) 6 miles away, and Garden Grove (pop. 175,400) 6 miles away. In Los Angeles (pop. 3,971,900, 27 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
