RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the quake hit on Saturday 21 November 2020 at 7.54 pm local time at a shallow depth of 10 km. 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.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should have been widely felt by almost everyone . . .
