An earthquake of magnitude 3.5 occurred on the morning of Saturday, March 20, 2021 at 10:22 a.m. local time near Rennes, Ille-et-Vilaine, Brittany, France, as reported by the National Seismic Surveillance Network (RéNaSS).
According to preliminary data, the earthquake was located 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 coming hours or minutes, as seismologists review the data and refine their calculations, or when other agencies release their report.
Based on preliminary seismic data, the earthquake should not have caused significant damage, but was likely felt by many people to be slight vibrations in the epicenter area.
