An earthquake of magnitude 3.4 occurred early morning on Tuesday 4 May 2021 at 5:36 am local time near Los Banos, Merced County, California, USA, as reported by the United States Geological Survey.
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a very shallow depth of 0.4 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 3.4 as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Tres Pinos (pop. 480) located 20 miles from the epicenter, Los Banos (pop. 37,500) 24 miles away, Hollister (pop. 37,500) 25 miles away, and Soledad (pop. 25,000) 29 miles away. In Salinas (pop. 157,400, 38 miles away), Gilroy (pop. 53,200, 38 miles away), and Merced (pop. 82,400, 48 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
