Mag. 4.4 earthquakeStrait of Sicily, 6.4 km northwest of Scoglitti, Ragusa, Sicily, Italy, on Tuesday, 22 Dec 9:27 pm (GMT +1)

A magnitude 4.8 earthquake near Vittoria, Province of Ragusa, Sicily, Italy, was reported on Tuesday 22 December 2020 at 9:27 pm local time by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at a very shallow depth of 9 kms beneath the epicentre in the evening. The exact magnitude, epicentre, 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 was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicentre. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc.

In Vittoria (pop. 50,900) located 8 km from the epicentre, Santa Croce Camerina (pop. 7,700) 11 km away, Acate (pop. 7,900) 13 km away, Comiso (pop. 26,300) 14 km away, Ragusa (pop. 61,400) 24 km away, Gela (pop. 73,900) 27 km away, Niscemi (pop. 26,900) 27 km away, and Modica (pop. 41,100) 27 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.

A 4.6-magnitude earthquake struck the Italian island of Sicily on Tuesday evening.

Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) said the “strong” tremor struck at 9.27pm and lasted for ten seconds.

It was clearly felt in the towns of Ragusa, Syracuse and Catania, the Italian news agency ANSA said.

The epicentre was reported to be in the Mediterranean Sea, 15 kilometres south of Acate on the southern Sicilian coast.

“I was so afraid, everything was shaking,” Stefano Sucato, who lives in Ragusa, told ANSA. “Many people have fled and are still on the street.”

Residents up to 300 kilometres away in the island’s capital Palermo reporting feeling the tremor.

It was also felt on the nearby island of Malta.

Italy’s Civil Protection Department said its initial checks produced no reports of damage or injuries.

Much of Italy and its islands lie on active fault lines and earthquakes occur frequently in the region.
