4.2 quake 19 Jul 2:01 am (GMT +4:30)
A magnitude 4.2 earthquake near Mohr, Fars, Iran, was reported only 20 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 shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter early morning on Monday 19 July 2021 at 1:31 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 4.2 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Mohr (pop. 35,000) located 98 km from the epicenter.
