Small 3.4 quake hits near Carlsbad, Eddy County, New Mexico, USA
3.4 quake 10 Jun 11:44 pm (GMT -5)

A magnitude 3.4 earthquake near Carlsbad, Eddy County, New Mexico, USA, was reported only 18 minutes ago by the United States Geological Survey, considered the key international and national agency that monitors seismic activity in the US. The earthquake occurred at a very shallow depth of 4.5 miles beneath the epicenter late at night on Thursday 10 June 2021 at 11:44 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 3.4 as well.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Malaga (pop. 150, 42 miles away), and Carlsbad (pop. 29,000, 52 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
