3.4 earthquake April 29 17:15 (GMT -8)

The United States Geological Survey reported a magnitude 3.4 earthquake in the United States near Kodiak on Kodiak Island, Alaska just 9 minutes ago. The earthquake struck on the afternoon of Thursday, April 29, 2021 at 5:15 p.m. local time at a shallow depth of 17 miles. 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.
A second report was then published by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC), which also listed it as a magnitude 3.4 earthquake.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the earthquake was felt by many people and caused no damage. At Aleneva (pop. 37, 39 miles away), and Kodiak (pop. 6,300, 51 miles away), the earthquake was probably not felt.
