2.7 quake Morbihan, Bretagne, France, Feb 18, 2024 08:26 pm (Paris time)

An earthquake of magnitude 2.7 occurred only 9 minutes ago 5 km northwest of Vannes, France, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported.
The quake hit at a very shallow depth of 5 km beneath the epicenter near Vannes, Morbihan, Bretagne, France, in the evening on Sunday, February 18th, 2024, at 8:26 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 France's Réseau National de Surveillance Sismique (RéNaSS), which listed it as a magnitude 2.7 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Ploeren (pop. 4,200) located 3 km from the epicenter, Arradon (pop. 5,200) 5 km away, Vannes (pop. 54,000) 5 km away, Saint-Avé (pop. 8,900) 7 km away, and Auray (pop. 12,300) 12 km away. In Lanester (pop. 24,400, 39 km away), Lorient (pop. 58,100, 41 km away), and Ploemeur (pop. 20,700, 45 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
