A magnitude 4.3 earthquake near Kutaisi, Imereti, Georgia, was reported only 20 minutes ago by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at a very shallow depth of 2 km beneath the epicenter around noon on Saturday 13 March 2021 at 1:46 pm 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.
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 Sach'khere (pop. 6,100) located 13 km from the epicenter, and Oni (pop. 3,000) 13 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Chiat'ura (pop. 12,800) located 22 km from the epicenter, Tqibuli (pop. 13,200) 40 km away, and Ts'khinvali (pop. 30,000) 49 km away.
