A magnitude 3.0 earthquake near Anderson, Denali County, Alaska, USA, was reported only 8 minutes ago by the United States Geological Survey (USGS), considered the key international and national agency that monitors seismic activity in the US. The earthquake occurred at a very shallow depth of 2.5 miles beneath the epicenter in the evening on Friday 25 December 2020 at 8:07 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.
3.0 quake 25 Dec 8:07 pm (GMT -9)
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 3.0 earthquake as well.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Anderson (pop. 270, 38 miles away), Clear, Alaska (pop. 24, 39 miles away), Nenana (pop. 380, 43 miles away), Four Mile Road (pop. 43, 43 miles away), and Manley Hot Springs (pop. 89, 44 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
