A 4.7 earthquake hit Central Mongolia last night, 23 March 2021, at 10:46 pm local time. The quake occurred at a shallow depth of 10 km, and about 160 km south of Ulaanbaatar, city capital of Mongolia.

Our monitoring service received multiple user reports describing light to moderate shaking. Most of these were reported from the capital city. Based on all available data, the quake was felt at up to a radius of 350 km from the epicenter.
Many people also reported that they felt their bed or couch shaking. Hanging appliances were also rattling during the quake. However, there were no immediate reports of significant damage.


This quake was unusual as it did not occur on any known faults or volcanoes in the country. The epicenter plotted approximately 400 to 500 km north of the Main Mongolian Lineament. Most of the tectonic activities in the country are usually focused on the northern and western regions. The most recent strong quake that hit the country occurred early this year. It struck with a magnitude of 6.8 right under Lake Khuvsgul in Northern Mongolia, near the Russian-Mongolian border.
