An earthquake of magnitude 4.6 occurred in the morning on Thursday 4 March 2021 at 7:34 am local time near Isla, Veracruz, Mexico, as reported by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a shallow depth of 28 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.
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 Isla (pop. 26,300) located 13 km from the epicenter, Carlos A. Carrillo (pop. 18,000) 38 km away, Cosamaloapan (pop. 30,600) 41 km away, San Andrés Tuxtla (pop. 61,800) 45 km away, Catemaco (pop. 27,600) 51 km away, Acayucan (pop. 50,900) 64 km away, and San Juan Bautista (pop. 101,800) 67 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Minatitlan (pop. 112,000) located 100 km from the epicenter.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available. If you're in the area, please send us your experience through our reporting mechanism, either online or via our mobile app. This will help us provide more first-hand updates to anyone around the globe who wants to know more about this quake.
