3.1 quake 16 Feb 3:17 pm (GMT -9)
An earthquake of magnitude 3.1 occurred early afternoon on Tuesday 16 February 2021 at 3:17 pm native time close to Pink Canine Mine, Northwest Arctic County, Alaska, USA, as reported by the US Geological Survey.
In response to preliminary knowledge, the quake was positioned at a shallow depth of 8.6 miles. Shallow earthquakes are felt extra strongly than deeper ones as they’re nearer to the floor. The precise magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake is perhaps revised inside the subsequent few hours or minutes as seismologists evaluation knowledge and refine their calculations, or as different businesses problem their report.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 3.1 earthquake as effectively.
In response to preliminary calculations, we don’t count on that the quake was felt by many individuals and didn’t trigger any harm. In Pink Canine Mine (pop. 310, 20 miles away), and Noatak (pop. 510, 41 miles away), the quake was most likely not felt.
