3.7 earthquake October 7 17:13 (GMT -7)
A magnitude 3.7 earthquake occurred on the afternoon of Thursday, October 7, 2021 at 5:13 p.m. local time near Mammoth Lakes in Mono County, California, United States, as reported the United States Geological Survey.
According to preliminary data, the earthquake was located at a very shallow depth of 4.9 miles. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deep ones because they are closer to the surface. The exact magnitude, epicenter and depth of the quake could be revised in the coming hours or minutes, as seismologists review the data and refine their calculations, or when other agencies release their report.
A second report was then published by the Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC), which classified it as a magnitude 3.8 earthquake.
Based on preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused significant damage, but was likely felt by many as a slight vibration in the epicenter area.
Weak tremors may have been felt in Mono City (170 inhabitants) located 18 km from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake could have been felt as very weak tremors include Mammoth Lakes (pop. 7,900) located 31 miles from the epicenter and Hawthorne (pop. 3,300) at 35 miles.
