Tremors from an earthquake of 7.5 magnitude that hit the Guatemalan coast Wednesday are forcing people to evacuate from buildings in Guatemala City and Mexico City. No tsunami warning has been issued.

GUATEMALA CITY — A strong earthquake shook buildings in Guatemala City and San Salvador and Mexico City Wednesday, according to Reuters witnesses. A magnitude 7.5 earthquake hit off Guatemala's Pacific coast, the U.S Geological Survey said.

The temblor was centered about 28 miles southwest of Champerico, Guatemala, at a depth of 20.5 miles, USGS said. The quake was originally reported at a magnitude of 7.3.

A Reuters witness in Guatemala City said people were evacuating homes in parts of the capital, and fire-fighters and rescue workers were on alert. Office workers were also evacuating buildings in Mexico City.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center did not issue a tsunami warning.

Not sure if people have been following Patrick Geryl's EQ predictions based upon planetary alignments but he has called the last three time windows to a T. It's scary actually.

So now we know one thing for sure, earthquakes are not caused by any sunspot or sun cycle, because sun is clearly blank, also earthquakes will keep on happening, its a natrual cycle. Also, one thing to understand, last week or so strong earthquake hit around Canada and now in Guatemala, plates shifting between Canada and Guatemala, whats in the middle? California or the west coast of America, I predict sooner or in few weeks, California should be on Alert for a major Earthquake. I think a lot of pressure is building up on the North Part of California and South of California, and now the middle will crack open soon and release its pressure. Lets hope no injuries occur and people realize that sooner or later it will happen.
