A magnitude 4.3 earthquake near Jijel, Algeria, was reported only 8 minutes ago by Spain's Instituto Geográfico Nacional (IGN), considered the main national agency that monitors seismic activity in this part of the world. The earthquake occurred at a very shallow depth of 5 km beneath the epicenter early morning on Thursday 25 March 2021 at 3:37 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 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 Jijel (pop. 148,000) located 16 km from the epicenter, and BABOR - VILLE (pop. 33,000) 46 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Rouached (pop. 40,300) located 63 km from the epicenter, Barbacha (pop. 32,000) 68 km away, Colmar (pop. 25,800) 69 km away, Setif (pop. 288,500) 81 km away, El Eulma (pop. 128,400) 83 km away, and Chelghoum el Aïd (pop. 71,700) 96 km away.
