Small magnitude 3.2 earthquake 5 km southwest of Monschau, Germany

3.2 quake 2 Jan 7:36 am (GMT +1)
3.2 quake 2 Jan 7:36 am (GMT +1)
An earthquake of magnitude 3.2 occurred in the morning on Saturday 2 January 2021 at 7:36 am local time near Monschau, Cologne District, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, as reported by the National Seismic Network of the geophysical institute of the university in Strasbourg, France (ReNaSS).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located 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.
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 Monschau (pop. 12,900) located 5 km from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Simmerath (pop. 15,600) located 11 km from the epicenter, Roetgen (pop. 8,200) 12 km away, Eupen (pop. 18,000) 13 km away, Hellenthal (pop. 8,600) 20 km away, Schleiden (pop. 14,200) 22 km away, Stolberg (pop. 58,900) 26 km away, and Aachen (pop. 265,200) 27 km away. In Cologne (pop. 963,400, 70 km away), and Köln (pop. 963,400, 70 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
