Moderate 4.0 quake hits near Tonopah, Nye County, Nevada, USA
4.0 quake 2 Apr 12:08 pm (GMT -7)
4.0 quake 2 Apr 12:08 pm (GMT -7)
A shallow magnitude 4.0 earthquake was reported around noon near Tonopah, Nye County, Nevada, USA.
According to the United States Geological Survey, the quake hit on Friday 2 April 2021 at 12:08 pm local time at a shallow depth of 6.5 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 4.0 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 Mina (pop. 160) located 20 miles from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Tonopah (pop. 2,500) located 36 miles from the epicenter, and Hawthorne (pop. 3,300) 47 miles away.

Silver Peak NV (51 km SSE of epicenter) [Map] / Light shaking (MMI IV) / horizontal (sideways) swinging / 10-15 s : I could hear the contents of all the closets and cabinets vibrate. Some drawers in the kitchen shook hard enough to roll slightly out. It was fairly loud but steady for maybe 10 seconds. The land basically shook the building. | 2 users found this interesting.
