Magnitude 4.3 earthquake strikes near Ridgecrest, Kern County, California, USA
4.3 quake 26 May 2:23 am (GMT -7)
4.3 quake 26 May 2:23 am (GMT -7)
An earthquake of magnitude 4.3 occurred early morning on Thursday, May 26th, 2022, at 2:23 am local time near Ridgecrest, Kern County, California, USA, as reported by the United States Geological Survey.
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a very shallow depth of 1.9 miles. 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake which listed the quake at magnitude 4.3 as well.
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 Searles Valley (pop. 1,700) located 11 miles from the epicenter, Ridgecrest (pop. 28,800) 15 miles away, China Lake Acres (pop. 1,900) 20 miles away, and Inyokern (pop. 1,100) 23 miles away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include California City (pop. 13,300) located 46 miles from the epicenter, Barstow (pop. 23,700) 53 miles away, Barstow Heights (pop. 24,200) 54 miles away, and Barstow Heights (pop. 24,200) 54 miles away.
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.
