Some damage reported , no casualties



(CNN)A magnitude 6.8 earthquake struck Thursday off Guatemala's Pacific coast, the US Geological Survey reported, causing some minor damage.

The quake was recorded at about 24 miles (38 kilometers) from the city of Puerto San Jose, according to the USGS.
One of the areas that suffered damage was Antigua Guatemala, the onetime colonial capital of Guatemala and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, according to CONRED, the country's emergency management system.

That's a pretty good sized shake.

Good idea to keep an eye on the area and see what the aftershocks do.

This is 8 days after a 6.9 hit the same area



On June 14, a magnitude 6.9 tremor hit Guatemala and southern Mexico, leaving five people dead, causing power outages and knocking down homes.

Yesterday's thread that was removed was a premonition of this event. It is just not in California as that mistake said it was.

I made sure to double check my details this time!

I was thinking the same though.

it's been 8 hours now. Hardly any aftershocks, only a 4.3 2 hours after. Weird, doesn't feel right.

That might be some small cause for concern, but if I recall correctly there are some ares which don't follow the normal aftershock progression; in other words, there aren't as many aftershocks as there are in other areas. That could be what we are seeing here.

It's been a while since I've been heavily involved in these kinds of threads, so you might want to take this with a modicum of salt and wait for some of our more experienced quake watchers to weigh in.

 


Also keep in mind that we may not be getting the full picture. Depending on what network you are looking to, they might not be listing anything under a certain magnitude.

Something to keep in mind about that site:


All Earthquake Data Courtesy USGS


You may have site configured to show everything down to 2.0+, but if they don't have the data (and since they're getting it from USGS, they won't), they won't show the quakes. Make note that nothing below M4.0 shows up at all on that site.

If you want, download GEE and configure it to read the stations at this site, GI: Red Sismologica Nacional- Guatemala

That should give a more accurate idea as to what activity is taking place below the M4.0 threshold.

Still no significant aftershocks, unless they occurring elsewhere, close by. There's been a couple of 4's in southern Mexico near Guatemala, following this quake.
