Mexico earthquake in Chiapas shakes region


www.bbc.co.uk

A 6.2-magnitude earthquake has hit the southern Mexican state of Chiapas, shattering windows and sending frightened residents into the streets.

The quake struck in the Pacific Ocean about 35 miles (55km) south-west of the city of Mapastepec, near Mexico's border with Guatemala.

In this article it says only a 6.2 CNN sent a alert to my phone saying 7.9. So it would seems they are not sure yet if the size of this EQ.

I know its not that rare for Mexico to get these but I figured I would post this because I am sure more news will come about it shortly.


The tremor was felt hundreds of miles away in El Salvador's capital, San Salvador.

There were no early reports of major damage or casualties.

The US Geological survey said on its website that the quake struck at 12:27 local time (18:47 GMT) at a depth of 40 miles.

Residents reported feeling the impact of the quake all across the region.

Mexico lies on the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire, where continental plates meet, and is regularly shaken by tremors.


More and more of these quakes are popping up lately too, but we'll see how this pans out.

Good find, Mexico City mayor is saying that there is no major damage to report so hopefully nothing more will come from it.

There also saying it was a 7.6


Mexico City, Mayor Marcelo Ebrard sent tweets saying there was no visible damage in the capital and that the sprawling city's strategic services and water system were functioning.

Yeah I got a alert before saying 7.9 but I think it's 7.6 now. The EQ hit in "the ring of fire" where it is common for these EQs. Hopefully everyone is okay and there isn't any major damage...

Yes, there hasn't been strong earthquakes around that area for a long time. But earthquake doesn't always easy the pressure, sometimes it could make pressure even higher. Lets hope it was actual earthquake, not foreshock.

Somehow I don't believe in 188-day cycle, as earthquakes are very random, and celestial bodies don't affect pressures underneath. They don't have any interaction with us, except moon.

earthquake 7.9 @18:02:53

earthquake 5.1 @18:35:40

Yeah hopefully not. I think with us seeing this one strong one there will be a bunch of mini quakes popping off. Hopefully not a foreshock though.

I wonder if S. America has felt anything today that was larger than the EQ in Mexico or anything down there...? Maybe not larger but if they have felt anything at all down there thats not related to the EQ.

I don't really by into it either, other planets don't effect the Earth like the Moon does

So does this give credibility to the 188 day cycle theory? It is pretty spot on for this quake if you ask me. I know some are going to say it happened in a hot spot which is true, but it's hard to deny the accuracy.

I figured so. I'm sure there will be more minis coming and possibly some smaller EQs down there.
