3.0 earthquake March 18 01:19 (GMT +1)
A low magnitude 3.0 earthquake was reported early in the morning near Poitiers, Vienne, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France.
According to the National Seismic Monitoring Network (RéNaSS), the earthquake struck on Thursday, March 18, 2021 at 1:19 am local time at a shallow depth of 10 km. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deep ones because they are closer to the surface. The exact magnitude, epicenter and depth of the quake could be revised in the next few hours or minutes, as seismologists review the data and refine their calculations, or when other agencies release their report.
Cities near the epicenter where the earthquake could have been felt as very weak tremors include Saint-Romain (390 inhabitants) located 3 km from the epicenter and Couhé (2,000 inhabitants) 16 km away. In Saint-Benoît (7,600 inhabitants 34 km away), Poitiers (86,000 inhabitants 37 km away), Châtellerault (37,200 inhabitants 65 km away), Niort (54,700 inhabitants 65 km away) and Angoulême (49,500 inhabitants, 69 km away), the earthquake was probably not felt.
