On Thursday afternoon, a light 2.9-magnitude earthquake struck Divinopolis, Minas Gerais, Brazil at a very shallow depth below 1km.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports.

The very light earthquake was most likely felt by a small number of people close to the epicenter. The closest city to the epicenter was Belo Horizonte located 96km away with a population of 2,300,000 people. Noone felt the shaking in the city.
