A shallow magnitude 3.1 earthquake was reported early morning near Winnemucca, Humboldt County, Nevada, USA.
According to the United States Geological Survey, the quake hit on Wednesday 7 April 2021 at 6:17 am local time at a shallow depth of 10.1 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 European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 3.1 as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Valmy (pop. 37) located 14 miles from the epicenter. In Winnemucca (pop. 7,900, 22 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
