An earthquake of magnitude 3.5 occurred early morning on Friday, June 24th, 2022, at 2:05 am local time near Coalinga, Fresno County, California, USA, as reported by the United States Geological Survey.
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a shallow depth of 6.9 miles. 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 3.5 earthquake as well. A third agency, the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, reported the same quake at magnitude 3.5.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Parkfield (pop. 18) located 7 miles from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Coalinga (pop. 16,600) located 15 miles from the epicenter, Avenal (pop. 13,300) 22 miles away, and Paso Robles (pop. 27,200) 26 miles away. In Atascadero (pop. 29,800, 34 miles away), Lemoore (pop. 25,600, 47 miles away), and San Luis Obispo (pop. 47,300, 48 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.

If you did NOT feel the quake although you were in the area, please report it! Your contribution is valuable to earthquake science, seismic 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.
