An earthquake of magnitude 4.4 occurred in the evening on Wednesday 24 March 2021 at 8:57 pm local time near Bucaramanga, Departamento de Santander, Colombia, as reported by the United States Geological Survey.
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at an intermediate depth of 142.8 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.4 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Cepita (pop. 380) located 13 km from the epicenter, Piedecuesta (pop. 86,400) 14 km away, Floridablanca (pop. 252,300) 24 km away, Giron (pop. 108,500) 29 km away, Bucaramanga (pop. 571,800) 32 km away, Malaga (pop. 18,700) 35 km away, San Gil (pop. 33,600) 38 km away, and Socorro (pop. 17,800) 53 km away.
