A shallow magnitude 3.5 earthquake was reported early evening near Wiener Neustadt, Wiener Neustadt Stadt, Lower Austria, Austria.
According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the quake hit on Friday 23 April 2021 at 6:30 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 3.3.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Gramatl (pop. 120) located 1 km from the epicenter, Pottschach (pop. 4,800) 5 km away, Ternitz (pop. 7,400) 5 km away, and Neunkirchen (pop. 11,500) 6 km away.

Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Wiener Neustadt (pop. 44,800) located 20 km from the epicenter, Baden bei Wien (pop. 26,300) 40 km away, Sopron (pop. 57,200) 41 km away, and Mödling (pop. 20,600) 50 km away. In Vienna (pop. 1,691,500, 65 km away), and St. Pölten (pop. 21,900, 67 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
