The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported a magnitude 4.3 quake in Puerto Rico near Puerto Rico, San Juan Antiguo Barrio, San Juan, only 21 minutes ago. The earthquake hit around noon on Thursday 10 June 2021 at 1:42 pm local time at a moderately shallow depth of 32 km. 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 United States Geological Survey, which listed it as a magnitude 4.3 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Puerto Rico (pop. 418,100) located 64 km from the epicenter, Levittown (pop. 29,800) 66 km away, Cataño (pop. 28,100) 67 km away, Bayamon (pop. 203,500) 71 km away, Loiza (pop. 4,300) 72 km away, Fajardo (pop. 34,100) 93 km away, Las Piedras (pop. 6,700) 99 km away, and Aibonito (pop. 8,900) 101 km away.
