Moderate magnitude 4.8 earthquake 65 km east of Selfoss, Iceland
4.8 quake 11 Nov 1:21 pm (GMT +0)
4.8 quake 11 Nov 1:21 pm (GMT +0)
An earthquake of magnitude 4.8 occurred around noon on Thursday, November 11th, 2021, at 1:21 pm local time near Selfoss, Sveitarfélagið Árborg, South, Iceland, as reported by the Icelandic Met Office (IMO).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a very shallow depth of 3.9 km. 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 the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) which listed the quake at magnitude 5.0. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 5.0.
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 Hvolsvollur (pop. 900) located 32 km from the epicenter, Hella (pop. 780) 36 km away, Vestmannaeyjar (pop. 4,200) 59 km away, Selfoss (pop. 6,500) 65 km away, Hveragerdi (pop. 2,300) 74 km away, and Thorlakshofn (pop. 1,500) 84 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Reykjavik (pop. 118,900) located 111 km from the epicenter, Kopavogur (pop. 31,700) 111 km away, and Hafnarfjordur (pop. 26,800) 112 km away.
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.
