4.2 quake 11 Jun 2:46 am (GMT -5)
A very shallow magnitude 4.2 earthquake was reported early morning near Macas, Cantón Morona, Provincia de Morona-Santiago, Ecuador.
According to the Institute of Geophysics of the National Polytechnic School in Quito (IGEPN), the quake hit on Friday 11 June 2021 at 2:46 am local time at a very shallow depth of 5 km. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.3.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Sucua (pop. 7,400) located 50 km from the epicenter, Macas (pop. 23,700) 63 km away, Gualaceo (pop. 17,100) 90 km away, Santiago (pop. 4,600) 91 km away, and Azogues (pop. 34,900) 99 km away.

Also if you did NOT feel the quake although you were in the area, please report it! Your contribution is valuable also to earthquake science and earthquake hazard analysis and mitigation efforts. You can use your device location or the map to indicate where you were during the earthquake. Thank you!

Data for the same earthquake reported by different agencies

Info: The more agencies report about the same quake and post similar data, the more confidence you can have in the data. It takes normally up to a few hours until earthquake parameters are calculated with near-optimum precision.
