A shallow magnitude 3.8 earthquake was reported early morning near Glogow, Głogów County, Lower Silesia, Poland.
According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the quake hit on Thursday, June 23rd, 2022, at 2:57 am 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.
A second report was later issued by the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, which listed it as a magnitude 3.8 earthquake as well. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 3.8.
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 Polkowice (pop. 21,600) located 5 km from the epicenter, Glogow (pop. 68,500) 13 km away, and Lubin (pop. 77,500) 19 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Nowa Sol (pop. 40,400) located 38 km from the epicenter, Legnica (pop. 106,000) 38 km away, Leszno (pop. 63,600) 47 km away, Bolesławiec (pop. 40,700) 48 km away, and Goldberg (pop. 16,600) 48 km away. In Breslau (pop. 634,900, 83 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
