Moderate magnitude 4.5 quake hits 16 km northwest of Ragusa, Croatia late at night

4.5 quake 24 Feb 11:07 pm (GMT +1)
4.5 quake 24 Feb 11:07 pm (GMT +1)
A magnitude 4.5 earthquake near Ragusa, Grad Dubrovnik, Dubrovačko-Neretvanska Županija, Croatia, was reported only 8 minutes ago by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter late at night on Wednesday 24 February 2021 at 11:07 pm local time. 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 4.3.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc.
In Brsečine (pop. 96) located 2 km from the epicenter, and Ragusa (pop. 28,400) 16 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Trebinje (pop. 33,200) located 33 km from the epicenter, and Metković (pop. 13,900) 44 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Budva (pop. 18,000) located 88 km from the epicenter.
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.
