A very shallow magnitude 3.5 earthquake was reported in the evening near Lake Isabella, Kern County, USA.
3.5 quake 26 Dec 8:05 pm (GMT -8)
According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the quake hit on Saturday 26 December 2020 at 8:05 pm local time at a very shallow depth of 0.1 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.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Squirrel Mountain Valley (pop. 550) located 11 miles from the epicenter, Bodfish (pop. 2,000) 13 miles away, Lake Isabella (pop. 3,500) 14 miles away, Onyx (pop. 480) 14 miles away, Alta Sierra (pop. 7,000) 22 miles away, Tehachapi (pop. 13,000) 26 miles away, Golden Hills (pop. 8,700) 27 miles away, and California City (pop. 13,300) 30 miles away. In Bakersfield (pop. 373,600, 42 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
