Give me a minute to see if any articles are up yet & I'll edit in links.

No actual articles just yet, but here's a link to Twitter about it to watch:

I just peeked at my stations loaded in GEE in the Pacific Northwest, and went, "whoa! Something big just went off."


This is showing amplitude of 3.5 millimeters/s and this seismometer is near Cabo San Lucas, about 900 miles away from epicenter.

You know, I really am beginning to suspect that big CMEs DO somehow trigger big quakes. Talk to me JadedandCynical, I'm ready to listen.

I wonder if Muzzy & Puterman would be willing to cross-reference CMEs and big quakes to see if there is a correlation?

Tsunami warning:

That location had a 4.5 magnitude earthquake just 2 days ago.

So much for the theory that earthquakes REDUCE pressure. Looks like the 4.5 caused increased pressure somehow.

I'd suggest PMing Muzzy, he's really adept at calculating released energy. He might be able to calculate what tonight's might have looked like if there'd been no 4.5 foreshock.

Looking at the map, I'm guessing there's maybe 800 miles between the two, give or take a bit? That's a hell of a distance to rock Mexico City from!

That's OK.. I wouldn't understand his answer. But thanks anyway. The Earth is really having fits, both below ground and in the atmosphere this week, isn't it?

There is a fault line running from somewhere in Guatamala to the area where the hurricane is. I wonder if energy can flow through that faultline and effect the site of this quake somehow.

I would think the hurricane transferring energy, and the CME added together could have a synergistic effect.

The breaking news at the link above was just updated.


The powerful quake caused people in Mexico's capital city to flee swaying buildings, and a blackout was reported in part of the city. Frightened residents gathered in the streets in the dark, fearing buildings would collapse.

The quake had a magnitude of 8.0 and its epicenter was 102 miles west of Tapachula in southern Chiapas state. It had a depth of about 21 miles.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center calls this a Mag 8.2 quake.

More like a foreshock then. Bigger ones might reduce stress

Just what they need, a tsunami and hurricane storm surges

a tsunami alert with an active hurricane in the area? that`s probably not a good thing is it? I think if I was living on the gulf coast I would be planning a long vacation with relatives in north Dakota about now,and if I had no relatives in north Dakota I would be planning a vacation to a salvation army shelter in north Dakota.

I think Mother Nature needs to go sit in the timeout corner. Her temper tantrums as of late have been a little ridiculous.
