Magnitude 3.0 earthquake strikes near Toyah, Reeves County, Texas, USA
3.0 quake 24 Apr 11:02 am (GMT -5)
3.0 quake 24 Apr 11:02 am (GMT -5)
A magnitude 3.0 earthquake near Toyah, Reeves County, Texas, USA, was reported only 18 minutes ago by the United States Geological Survey, considered the key international and national agency that monitors seismic activity in the US. The earthquake occurred at a very shallow depth of 3.9 miles beneath the epicenter in the morning on Saturday 24 April 2021 at 11:02 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 2.9.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Toyah (pop. 98, 39 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
