Minutes ago the Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) reported a 4.4-magnitude in the Tyrrhenian Sea, 57 km west of Lamezia Terme, Italy at a depth of 199.5km.
The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports.
The earthquake was most likely not felt by a lot of people. It is most likely that the nearby towns of Villaggio del Golfo (pop. 11, 40 km away), Vibo Valentia (pop. 19,300, 52 km away), Sambiase (pop. 20,000, 55 km away), Lamezia Terme (pop. 70,500, 57 km away), Nicastro (pop. 40,000, 58 km away), Nicastro-Sambiase (pop. 55,700, 58 km away), Cosenza (pop. 63,900, 63 km away), Quattromiglia (pop. 22,900, 65 km away), and Gioia Tauro (pop. 18,800, 66 km away) the quake was not felt.
