3.0 quake 12 Mar 3:53 am (GMT -9)
Just 19 minutes ago, a 3.0-magnitude earthquake struck near Nikiski, Kenai Peninsula, Alaska, USA. The tremor was recorded early morning on Friday 12 March 2021 at 3:53 am local time, at an intermediate depth of 45 miles below the surface.
The event was filed by the United States Geological Survey, the first seismological agency to report it.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 3.1.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Nikiski (pop. 4,500, 14 miles away), Kenai (pop. 7,700, 22 miles away), Ridgeway (pop. 2,000, 27 miles away), Soldotna (pop. 4,500, 30 miles away), Kalifornsky (pop. 7,900, 30 miles away), Cohoe (pop. 1,400, 33 miles away), and Sterling (pop. 5,600, 35 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
