According to preliminary processing data, the center of the earthquake was at a depth of 20 km ..

"Today's earthquake in Podgorica is not associated with soil subsidence after the recent earthquake in the town of Plav, which magnitude was 5.1 on the Richter scale," said seismologist Marin Chavelish. According to the Institute of Hydrometeorology and Seismology, the intensity of the earthquake in Podgorica corresponded to the IV degree on the Mercalli scale (MCS).

Based on the theoretical model of macroseismic fields in this region of Montenegro, as well as the magnitude, intensity and depth of the epicenter, it was determined that an earthquake near Podgorica could not cause any material damage or harm to the population.
