Magnitude 6.2 earthquake strikes near Concepcion, Provincia de Concepción, Region del Biobio, Chile
6.2 quake 21 Sep 8:14 am (GMT -5)
6.2 quake 21 Sep 8:14 am (GMT -5)
Chile was shaken near Concepcion, Provincia de Concepción, Region del Biobio, by an earthquake of magnitude 6.2 only 16 minutes ago, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported.
The quake hit at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter near Concepcion, Provincia de Concepción, Region del Biobio, Chile, in the morning on Tuesday, September 21st, 2021, at 8:14 am local time. 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 France's Réseau National de Surveillance Sismique (RéNaSS) which listed the quake at magnitude 5.4. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 6.1.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should have been widely felt by almost everyone in the area of the epicenter. It might have caused light to moderate damage.
Moderate shaking probably occurred in Talcahuano (pop. 253,000) located 57 km from the epicenter.
In Coronel (pop. 92,900) located 62 km from the epicenter, Concepcion (pop. 215,400) 63 km away, Lota (pop. 49,800) 64 km away, Arauco (pop. 24,700) 65 km away, Chiguayante (pop. 82,500) 67 km away, Penco (pop. 46,100) 67 km away, and Tomé (pop. 46,700) 73 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available. If you're in the area, please send us your experience through our reporting mechanism, either online or via our mobile app. This will help us provide more first-hand updates to anyone around the globe who wants to know more about this quake.
