3.4 quake 1 Mar 4:24 am (GMT -7)

A very shallow magnitude 3.4 earthquake was reported early morning near Weston, Las Animas County, Colorado, USA.
According to the United States Geological Survey, the quake hit on Monday 1 March 2021 at 4:24 am local time at a very shallow depth of 2.1 miles. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 3.4 as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Weston (pop. 55) located 20 miles from the epicenter. In Raton (pop. 6,200, 31 miles away), Trinidad (pop. 8,200, 34 miles away), and Taos (pop. 5,700, 45 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
