M 6.9 Earthquake
8km SW of Tajumulco, Guatemala
An earthquake with magnitude 6.9 occurred 8km SW of Tajumulco, Guatemala at 07:29:06.67 UTC on Jun 14, 2017 according to USGS.

More to come


The earthquake, which struck at 1:29 a.m. local time on Wednesday, was centered near the Tajumulco Volcano, about 13.2 kilometers (8.2 miles) northwest of San Marcos in Guatemala, or 37 kilometers (23 miles) northeast of Tapachula in Mexico. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) put the preliminary magnitude of the earthquake at 6.9, while seismologists in Mexico and Guatemala put the magnitude at 7.0 and 6.6, respectively. They said it struck at a depth of roughly 100 kilometers (62 miles), making it a relatively deep earthquake.

Residents said the earthquake was felt across the region and woke up many people, but there was no immediate word on damage or casualties. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said there was no threat of a tsunami along the coast.

That's seismic but a 7 would make me look up.

I think human consciousness is invoking it, won't be much longer before we see some real activity. The Ring of Fire will be the first to rear it's head imho.

Aye, the area (off the coast) appears to have had some activity as well over the last 12 hours or so.

I'm interested to see what volcanic implications there might be.

Hopefully no one has been hurt.

Yes I agree. However some things are out of our hands. It's a hit or miss, like the ring of fire. No one knows when the big one is going to hit. We can only hang on and hope for the best.

Cheers

GUATEMALA CITY - A magnitude 6.9 earthquake in western Guatemala near the border with Mexico caused moderate damage to homes, triggered some landslides across highways and injured at least one person early Wednesday, officials said.

The U.S. Geological Survey reported the tremor was centered 5 miles southwest of Tajumulco, Guatemala about 69 miles below the surface.

Guatemala's emergency coordination agency said the quake struck at 1:29 a.m. local time in the department of San Marcos west of the capital near the Mexican border, but was felt throughout the country.

The country's National Civil Police said one person was injured in San Sebastian Retalhuelu in southern Guatemala when part of a church collapsed. Julio Sanchez of the volunteer firefighters said the man, who was passing by the church when the earthquake struck, was receiving care.

Authorities reported several departments, or states, without electricity.

Across the border in Chiapas, Mexico, Gov. Manuel Velasco said via Twitter that there were reports of cracked walls and shattered windows in Huixtla, but so far no injuries. The state's Civil Protection authorities said the quake was felt throughout the state.

There was no tsunami warning.
