3.1 earthquake April 7 06:17 (GMT -7)

A low-magnitude 3.1 earthquake was reported early in the morning near Winnemucca, Humboldt County, Nevada, United States.
According to the United States Geological Survey, the earthquake struck on Wednesday April 7, 2021 at 6:17 a.m. local time at a shallow depth of 10.1 miles. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deep ones because they are closer to the surface. The exact magnitude, epicenter and depth of the quake could be revised in the coming hours or minutes, as seismologists review the data and refine their calculations, or when other agencies release their report.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC) which also listed the 3.1 magnitude earthquake.
Cities near the epicenter where the quake could have been felt as very weak tremors include Valmy (pop. 37) located 14 miles from the epicenter. In Winnemucca (7,900 residents, 22 miles away), the earthquake was probably not felt.
