Magnitude 3.6 earthquake strikes near Cantwell, Denali County, Alaska, United States

A magnitude 3.6 earthquake near Cantwell, Denali County, Alaska, USA, was reported only 9 minutes ago by the United States Geological Survey (USGS), considered the key international and national agency that monitors seismic activity in the US. The earthquake occurred at a moderately shallow depth of 40 miles beneath the epicenter early evening on Thursday 7 January 2021 at 7:45 pm local time. 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 3.5 earthquake.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Cantwell (pop. 220, 35 miles away), and Chase (pop. 34, 39 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
