Small magnitude 3.1 quake hits 31 miles southeast of Healy, Alaska, United States early morning

An earthquake of magnitude 3.1 occurred only 8 minutes ago 31 miles southeast of Healy, Alaska, United States, the United States Geological Survey reported.
The quake hit at an intermediate depth of 53 miles beneath the epicenter near Healy, Denali, Alaska, USA, early morning on Friday, August 5th, 2022, at 2:58 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake which listed the quake at magnitude 3.1 as well. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 3.1.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In McKinley Park (pop. 190, 27 miles away), and Healy (pop. 1000, 31 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.

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.
