Magnitude 4.2 earthquake strikes near Gisenyi, Western Province, Rwanda
4.2 quake 24 May 12:52 am (GMT +2)
4.2 quake 24 May 12:52 am (GMT +2)
A magnitude 4.2 earthquake near Gisenyi, Western Province, Rwanda, was reported only 19 minutes ago by the United States Geological Survey, considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter after midnight on Monday 24 May 2021 at 12:52 am local time. 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 4.2 earthquake as well.
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 Gisenyi (pop. 83,600) located 16 km from the epicenter, Goma (pop. 144,100) 18 km away, Ruhengeri (pop. 86,700) 32 km away, and Sake (pop. 17,200) 39 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Gitarama (pop. 87,600) located 63 km from the epicenter, Kigali (pop. 745,300) 82 km away, and Nzega (pop. 33,800) 95 km away.

If you felt this quake (or if you were near the epicenter), please share your experience and submit a short "I felt it" report! Other users would love to hear about it!
If you did NOT feel the quake although you were in the area, please report it! Your contribution is valuable to earthquake science, seismic hazard analysis and mitigation efforts. You can use your device location or the map to indicate where you were during the earthquake. Thank you!

Data for the same earthquake reported by different agencies

Info: The more agencies report about the same quake and post similar data, the more confidence you can have in the data. It takes normally up to a few hours until earthquake parameters are calculated with near-optimum precision.
