5.2R Earthquake in AUSTRIA


A 4.2R earthquake has been reported in Austria .

 A shallow magnitude 4.3 earthquake was reported early evening near Wiener Neustadt, Wiener Neustadt Stadt, Austria Beherea, Austria.
According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the quake hit on Tuesday 30 March 2021 at 6:25 pm local time at a shallow depth of 10 km. 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.9 earthquake.
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 Föhrenau (pop. 450) located 3 km from the epicenter, and Wiener Neustadt (pop. 44,800) 4 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Eisenstadt (pop. 9,200) located 25 km from the epicenter, Baden bei Wien (pop. 26,300) 26 km away, Meidling (pop. 97,600) 45 km away, and Favoriten (pop. 201,900) 45 km away.
