An earthquake of magnitude 3.2 occurred around noon on Saturday 8 May 2021 at 12:04 pm local time near Junction City, Geary County, Kansas, USA, as reported by the United States Geological Survey.
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a very shallow depth of 1.7 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 3.2 earthquake as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.

Weak shaking might have been felt in Wagram (pop. 340) located 3 miles from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Abilene (pop. 6,600) located 18 miles from the epicenter. In Junction City (pop. 24,600, 25 miles away), Marion (pop. 1,800, 25 miles away), Salina (pop. 47,800, 33 miles away), Manhattan (pop. 56,300, 41 miles away), and Newton (pop. 19,200, 49 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
