A magnitude 4.9 earthquake near Reykjavik, Reykjavíkurborg, Capital Region, Iceland, was reported only 14 minutes ago by the Icelandic Met Office (IMO), considered the main national agency that monitors seismic activity in this part of the world. The earthquake occurred at a very shallow depth of 2.4 km beneath the epicenter in the morning on Thursday 11 March 2021 at 8:52 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.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should have been widely felt by almost everyone in the area of the epicenter. It might have caused light to moderate damage.
Moderate shaking probably occurred in Grindavik (pop. 2,900) located 9 km from the epicenter.
In Reykjanesbaer (pop. 2,000) located 19 km from the epicenter, Hafnarfjordur (pop. 26,800) 27 km away, Hafnarfjörður (pop. 26,800) 27 km away, Garðabaer (pop. 11,400) 29 km away, Garðabær (pop. 11,400) 29 km away, Kopavogur (pop. 31,700) 31 km away, and Reykjavik (pop. 118,900) 34 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.

Weak shaking might have been felt in Mosfellsbaer (pop. 8,700) located 43 km from the epicenter, and Mosfellsbær (pop. 8,700) 43 km away.
