Magnitude 3.6 earthquake strikes near Old Harbor, Kodiak Island, Alaska, USA

3.6 quake 16 Dec 8:57 am (GMT -10)
3.6 quake 16 Dec 8:57 am (GMT -10)
An earthquake of magnitude 3.6 occurred in the morning on Thursday, December 16th, 2021, at 8:57 am local time near Old Harbor, Kodiak Island, Alaska, USA, as reported by the United States Geological Survey.
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a very shallow depth of 4.8 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 3.6 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Old Harbor (pop. 220) located 29 miles from the epicenter, and Akhiok (pop. 72) 38 miles away.
