Small 3.1 earthquake strikes near Tarbes, France
IGN reported a 3.1 magnitude earthquake in France near Campan just 4 minutes ago. The earthquake struck on the morning of Monday, November 23, 2020 at 10:17 a.m. local time, at a very shallow depth of 5 km. 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.
A second report was then released by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC), which also listed it as a 3.1 magnitude earthquake.
Based on preliminary seismic data, the earthquake should not have caused significant damage, but was likely felt by many to be slight vibrations in the epicenter area. Weak tremors were felt at Campan (pop. 1600) located 10 km from the epicenter, Beaudéan (pop. 400) at 11 km, Asté (pop. 500) at 12 km, Sers (pop. 100) at 13 km, and Asque (100 inhabitants) 14 km.
Cities near the epicenter where the earthquake could have been felt as very weak tremors include Lourdes (15,800 inhabitants) located 27 km from the epicenter, Tarbes (52,100 inhabitants) 35 km and Saint-Gaudens (12 200 inhabitants) 49 km.
