Minor magnitude 3.7 earthquake at 130 km depth

24 Jun 23:33 UTC: First to report: USGS after 3 minutes.
25 Jun 00:36: Magnitude recalculated from 3.5 to 3.7. Hypocenter depth recalculated from 128.2 to 129.7 km (from 80 to 81 mi). Epicenter location corrected by 1.1 km (0.7 mi) towards WNW.
Update Fri, 24 Jun 2022, 23:39
Small magnitude 3.5 quake hits 40 miles southeast of Denali National Park, Alaska, United States early afternoon
3.5 quake 24 Jun 3:31 pm (GMT -8)
3.5 quake 24 Jun 3:31 pm (GMT -8)
An earthquake of magnitude 3.5 occurred only 8 minutes ago 40 miles southeast of Denali National Park, Alaska, United States, the United States Geological Survey reported.
The quake hit at an intermediate depth of 80 miles beneath the epicenter near Denali National Park, Denali, Alaska, USA, early afternoon on Friday, June 24th, 2022, at 3:31 pm 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 3.5 earthquake as well. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 3.5.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Denali National Park (pop. 220, 40 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.

If you felt this quake (or if you were near the epicenter), please share your experience and submit a short "I felt it" report! Other users would love to hear about it!
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.
