The United States Geological Survey reported a magnitude 3.6 quake in the United States near Ridgecrest, Kern County, California, only 8 minutes ago. The earthquake hit early evening on Wednesday 19 May 2021 at 6:37 pm local time at a very shallow depth of 1.1 miles. 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 3.6 earthquake 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 15 miles from the epicenter, Ridgecrest (pop. 28,800) 31 miles away, and China Lake Acres (pop. 1,900) 34 miles away.
