An earthquake of magnitude 3.0 occurred only 21 minutes ago 16 miles southeast of Salina, Kansas, United States, the United States Geological Survey reported.
The quake hit at a very shallow depth of 3.1 miles beneath the epicenter near Salina, Saline County, Kansas, USA, in the morning on Saturday, June 4th, 2022, at 11:23 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 citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, which listed it as a magnitude 3.0 earthquake as well. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 3.0.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Gypsum (pop. 400) located 6 miles from the epicenter, Lindsborg (pop. 3,400) 11 miles away, and Salina (pop. 47,800) 16 miles away. In McPherson (pop. 13,100, 21 miles away), Abilene (pop. 6,600, 24 miles away), Newton (pop. 19,200, 41 miles away), Junction City (pop. 24,600, 44 miles away), and Hutchinson (pop. 41,600, 47 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
