A magnitude 4.2 earthquake struck on Saturday evening 20 February 2021 at 8:33 pm local time near Christchurch, Christchurch City, Canterbury, New Zealand, as reported by the New Zealand Earthquake Commission and Geological Survey (GeoNet).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a very shallow depth of 6.3 km. Shallow earthquakes feel stronger than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. 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 Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC), which also listed it as a 4.2 magnitude earthquake.
