An earthquake of magnitude 4.4 occurred early morning on Friday 16 April 2021 at 4:09 am local time near Ovalle, Provincia de Limarí, Coquimbo Region, Chile, as reported by the United States Geological Survey.
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a moderately shallow depth of 43.2 km. 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 4.4 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 Ovalle (pop. 77,100) located 35 km from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Monte Patria (pop. 13,900) located 49 km from the epicenter, Illapel (pop. 22,800) 92 km away, Coquimbo (pop. 161,300) 99 km away, La Serena (pop. 154,500) 105 km away, and La Serena (pop. 154,500) 105 km away.
