5.4R in Cyprus


 A magnitude 5.4 earthquake near Larnaca, Larnaka, Cyprus, was reported only 9 minutes ago by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. We have no Calendar earthquake for Cyprus but our coordinates


Predicted it is [34.99N, 35. 039W]

Epicenter is [35.00N, 33.76E]

 The earthquake occurred at a moderately shallow depth of 60 km beneath the epicenter in the afternoon on Thursday 21 January 2021 at 4:27 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 the National Observatory of Athens (NOA), which listed it as a magnitude 5.1 earthquake. A third agency, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), reported the same quake at magnitude 5.2.
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.
