A magnitude 5.1 earthquake struck early on Friday 19 February 2021 at 3:54 am local time near La Serena, Provincia de Elqui, Coquimbo Region, Chile, as reported by the German Geosciences Research Center (GFZ).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at an average shallow depth of 30 km. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake may be reviewed within the next hours or minutes as seismologists review the data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies release their report.
A second report was later released by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC), which ranked it as a 5.2 magnitude earthquake.
Based on preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but it was probably felt by many people as a flicker of light in the epicenter area.
