A shallow magnitude 4.6 earthquake was reported in the morning near Puerta de Corral Quemado, Departamento de Belén, Catamarca, Argentina.
According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the quake hit on Tuesday 4 May 2021 at 10:15 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.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Antofagasta de la Sierra (pop. 500) located 76 km from the epicenter, and Puerta de Corral Quemado (pop. 1,600) 96 km away.
