Significant earthquake of magnitude 6.0 just reported 131 km south of Canegua, Panama
6.0 quake 17 Jul 2:56 pm (GMT -6)
6.0 quake 17 Jul 2:56 pm (GMT -6)
A shallow magnitude 6.0 earthquake was reported early afternoon near Canegua, Provincia de Chiriqui, Panama.
According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the quake hit on Saturday 17 July 2021 at 2:56 pm local time at a shallow depth of 10 km. 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 France's Réseau National de Surveillance Sismique (RéNaSS), which listed it as a magnitude 6.2 earthquake. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 6.2.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc.
In Canegua (pop. 14) located 131 km from the epicenter, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available. If you're in the area, please send us your experience through our reporting mechanism, either online or via our mobile app. This will help us provide more first-hand updates to anyone around the globe who wants to know more about this quake.
