Just 6 minutes ago, a 3.1-magnitude earthquake struck near Ridgecrest, Kern County, California, USA. The tremor was recorded in the afternoon on Tuesday 23 March 2021 at 5:08 pm local time, at a very shallow depth of 1.8 miles below the surface.
The event was filed by the United States Geological Survey, the first seismological agency to report it.
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 Searles Valley (pop. 1,700) located 9 miles from the epicenter, Ridgecrest (pop. 28,800) 13 miles away, and China Lake Acres (pop. 1,900) 18 miles away. In Inyokern (pop. 1,100, 21 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
If you felt it, report it through our site or app right now!
