Tsunami center indicates that no tsunami was generated.

I think it was downgraded to a 5.8 mag.

Oh thanks, it's not downgraded where I'm looking and no text bulletin report in the tsunami warning Center posted yet

(Reuters) - A magnitude 6.2 quake struck Mexico on Tuesday in the Gulf of California, 75 miles (121 km) west south-west of the city of El Dorado, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said, but there were no immediate reports of damage. The quake was shallow at just 6.2 miles (10 km), and was felt inland in the city of Culiacan, the capital of the western state of Sinaloa, Culiacan emergency services spokeswoman Melva Uribe said. "We felt a light shake for about five to ten seconds," she said. "So far, we don't have a single report of damages."

I clicked on the EQ icon where it occurred on this page and got that message. The 5.8 report was on the Potsdam site. I just happened to click on it when it came up. Guess if USGS has it as a 6.2 and it's been reviewed, then it's more accurate.

I love it when there are no damages. Thanks for the info, Violet.

Ok thank you . I've looked all over and it's still 6.2. Might downgrade later though.

I used to use that one, but I was never sure about it. The one I use now shows the recorded earthquake so I have more confidence in it I guess. Not that it matters much. I'm no expert in any case.
