A very shallow magnitude 3.5 earthquake was reported early morning near South Lake Tahoe, El Dorado County, California, USA.
3.5 quake 15 Sep 5:29 am (GMT -7)
According to the United States Geological Survey, the quake hit on Wednesday, September 15th, 2021, at 5:29 am local time at a very shallow depth of 3.4 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 3.3 earthquake.
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 Walker (pop. 720) located 8 miles from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Topaz Ranch Estates (pop. 1,500) located 22 miles from the epicenter, Smith Valley (pop. 1,600) 28 miles away, and Smith (pop. 1000) 29 miles away. In Gardnerville Ranchos (pop. 11,300, 34 miles away), Gardnerville (pop. 5,700, 38 miles away), South Lake Tahoe (pop. 21,700, 42 miles away), and Carson City (pop. 54,500, 53 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
