An earthquake of magnitude 4.5 occurred 31 minutes ago 18 km southwest of Turt, Mongolia, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported.
The quake hit at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter near Turt, Khankh, Hövsgöl Aymag, Mongolia, early afternoon on Friday 12 March 2021 at 3:05 pm local time. Magnitude and other quake parameters can still change in the coming hours as the agency continues to process seismic data.
A second report was later issued by the United States Geological Survey, which listed it as a magnitude 4.5 earthquake as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc.
In Turt (pop. 2,100) located 18 km from the epicenter, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
