Just 9 minutes ago, a 4.8-magnitude earthquake struck near Argostoli, Kefallonia, Ionian Islands, Greece. The tremor was recorded early afternoon on Friday, November 19th, 2021, at 3:27 pm local time, at a shallow depth of 10 km below the surface.
The event was filed by the National Observatory of Athens (NOA), the first seismological agency to report it.
A second report was later issued by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), which listed it as a magnitude 4.9 earthquake. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 5.0.
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 Athéras (pop. 170) located 3 km from the epicenter, Lixouri (pop. 3,800) 11 km away, Argostoli (pop. 9,800) 16 km away, Valsamata (pop. 1000) 22 km away, and Samos (pop. 1,300) 23 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Ithaki (pop. 1,800) located 30 km from the epicenter, Zante (pop. 11,500) 73 km away, and Preveza (pop. 17,300) 80 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Agrinio (pop. 46,900) located 96 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.
