Small magnitude 3.2 quake hits 18 miles southwest of Enid, Oklahoma, United States early morning
3.2 quake 5 Mar 2:26 am (GMT -6)

Just 6 minutes ago, a 3.2-magnitude earthquake struck near Enid, Garfield County, Oklahoma, USA. The tremor was recorded early morning on Friday 5 March 2021 at 2:26 am local time, at a very shallow depth of 2.7 miles below the surface.
The event was filed by the United States Geological Survey, the first seismological agency to report it.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 3.1 earthquake.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Ames (pop. 250) located 3 miles from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Okeene (pop. 1,200) located 15 miles from the epicenter, Waukomis (pop. 1,400) 16 miles away, Fairview (pop. 2,700) 17 miles away, and Enid (pop. 51,800) 18 miles away.

Tsunami warning raised again after third powerful earthquake hit off the coast of North Island, NZ

A third powerful earthquake hit off the coast of North Island, New Zealand on Friday, 5 March 2021, 7:28 am local time. This magnitude 8.1 quake occurred near the Kermadec Islands about 880 km north of New Zealand, at a depth of 20-24 km.
Although this quake was not felt much in the nearby North Island, the New Zealand National Emergency Management Agency urged people in some areas to head for higher ground. A tsunami warning was raised over several coastal areas of both North and South Island, New Zealand.

The warning was lifted later that day, at around 1:40 pm local time. According to the latest tsunami threat message from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, tsunami waves were measured as far as the French Polynesia more than 3000 km northeast of the earthquake's epicenter. The northern coast of New Zealand’s North Island was hit by tsunami waves of about 0.16 meters high, i.e., only 16 centimeters. The areas hit include the coasts from North Cape to East Cape.
No significant damage has been reported.

According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS ), the earthquake resulted from a reverse faulting in the Tonga-Kermadec subduction zone at a depth of about 22 km. USGS was also able to identify the earlier 7.4 quake as a foreshock preceding this quake by nearly 2 hours. The first of the three major earthquakes, which occurred 6 hours prior the second quake, did not directly cause the second and third quakes.

Moderate earthquake of magnitude 4.6 just reported 89 km northwest of Ternate, Indonesia
4.6 quake 5 Mar 9:19 am (GMT +9)

An intermediate magnitude 4.6 earthquake was reported in the morning near Ternate, Maluku Utara, Indonesia.
According to Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency, the quake hit on Friday 5 March 2021 at 9:19 am local time at an intermediate depth of 126 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.6 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Tobelo (pop. 10,000) located 88 km from the epicenter, Ternate (pop. 101,700) 89 km away, and Sofifi (pop. 36,200) 101 km away.

Moderate magnitude 4.7 quake hits 50 km southwest of Reuleuet, Indonesia early morning
4.7 quake 5 Mar 6:36 am (GMT +7)

Just 14 minutes ago, a 4.7-magnitude earthquake struck near Reuleuet, Aceh, Indonesia. The tremor was recorded early morning on Friday 5 March 2021 at 6:36 am local time, at a shallow depth of 10 km below the surface.
The event was filed by Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency, the first seismological agency to report it.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.7 as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Reuleuet (pop. 40,400) located 50 km from the epicenter, Sigli (pop. 17,500) 56 km away, and Meulaboh (pop. 35,100) 83 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Bireun (pop. 25,800) located 87 km from the epicenter, Banda Aceh (pop. 250,800) 103 km away, and Banda Aceh (pop. 250,800) 103 km away.

Surprise Larisa quake was a "twin" of an earlier one from the day before!

Authorities in Greece are calling Thursday evening's quake, which occurred at .8.38 pm local time, a "surprise earthquake" as it is as strong as the main earthquake that occurred the day before. Usually aftershocks are less intense than the main event, however one of the country's most notable geologists, Efthimios Lekkas, said that another part of the fault line had become activated. Luckily, this occurred far from densely populated areas. Lekkas is still hesitant to say this latest quake can be characterized as an actual aftershock.

Another noteworthy geologist, Vasilis Karakostas, was quoted on local television saying that the fault seems to be spreading westwards, activating a new fault line apart from that of yesterday's 5.2 magnitude quake.

VolcanoDiscovery user reports poured in from three different countries, namely Greece, North Macedonia and Albania. There were reports of different levels of shaking in the Greek cities of Volos, Katerini and Kozani, with reports of strong shaking in Larisa, Thessaloniki and Veria which are relatively close to the epicenter. Ohrid in North Macedonia also felt moderate shaking according to one filed report.

Magnitude 6.2 earthquake strikes near Larissa, Lárisa, Thessaly, Greece
6.2 quake 4 Mar 8:38 pm (GMT +2)

A magnitude 6.2 earthquake near Larissa, Lárisa, Thessaly, Greece, was reported only 7 minutes ago by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter in the evening on Thursday 4 March 2021 at 8:38 pm local time. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 6.0 earthquake.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should have been felt by everybody in the area of the epicenter. In those areas, dangerous ground shaking occurred with the potential to inflict moderate to heavy damage to buildings and other infrastructure.
Towns or cities where the quake likely caused strong ground shaking include
Moderate shaking probably occurred in Larissa (pop. 144,700) located 29 km from the epicenter, Trikala (pop. 61,700) 43 km away, Karditsa (pop. 32,800) 53 km away, and Katerini (pop. 53,300) 60 km away.
