Moderate magnitude 4.0 earthquake 15 km northeast of Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina
4.0 quake 19 Feb 9:22 am (GMT +1)

The German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported a magnitude 4.0 quake in Bosnia and Herzegovina near Sarajevo, Sarajevo Canton, Federation of B&H, only 5 minutes ago. The earthquake hit in the morning on Monday, February 19th, 2024, at 9:22 am local time at a shallow depth of 10 km. 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 4.0 earthquake as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Hotonj (pop. 4,000) located 10 km from the epicenter, Vogošća (pop. 8,200) 11 km away, Sarajevo (pop. 696,700) 15 km away, and Visoko (pop. 17,900) 19 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Zenica (pop. 164,400) located 48 km from the epicenter, Konjic (pop. 16,000) 52 km away, Lukavac (pop. 44,500) 63 km away, Tuzla (pop. 142,500) 65 km away, Travnik (pop. 31,100) 66 km away, and Bugojno (pop. 41,400) 78 km away.
