A magnitude 4.4 earthquake near Zhangjiakou, Hebei, China, was reported only 21 minutes ago by the United States Geological Survey, considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at a moderately shallow depth of 30.1 km beneath the epicenter in the morning on Tuesday 22 June 2021 at 11:14 am 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 4.4 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Zhangjiakou (pop. 692,600) located 85 km from the epicenter.
