A magnitude 4.2 earthquake near Belvedere Marittimo, Provincia di Cosenza, Calabria, Italy, was reported only 11 minutes ago by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at an intermediate to considerable depth of 268 km beneath the epicenter late at night on Friday 23 July 2021 at 11:52 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 4.3.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Telegrafo (pop. 83, 47 km away), Belvedere Marittimo (pop. 6,200, 47 km away), Cetraro Marina (pop. 4,000, 50 km away), Scalea (pop. 9,300, 55 km away), Marina di Fuscaldo (pop. 3,100, 56 km away), Paola (pop. 12,600, 59 km away), San Lucido (pop. 4,200, 61 km away), Praia a Mare (pop. 6,500, 62 km away), and Tortora Marina (pop. 4,900, 64 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
