4.0 quake 28 Mar 5:05 pm (GMT -8)

A very shallow magnitude 4.0 earthquake was reported in the afternoon near Valdez, Valdez-Cordova, Alaska, USA.
According to the United States Geological Survey, the quake hit on Sunday 28 March 2021 at 5:05 pm local time at a very shallow depth of miles. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. 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 4.0 as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc.
In Valdez (pop. 3,900) located 5 miles from the epicenter, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Cordova (pop. 2,200) located 48 miles from the epicenter.
