The earthquake set off a city-wide alarm and caused nearby buildings to sway.

There were no immediate reports of damages or injuries.

MORE DETAILS TO FOLLOW.


This is strange, the earthquake still needs to happen ? Or what? Currently no more info. So is this a big one coming?

Hope they get this on camera
Didn't anyone see this coming ? TA ? Olivine?

5.5 near Mexico City. The entire city is a giant landfill site. Any moderate quake would rock the city pretty good.

So far no injuries, but this was kinda weird though, the article got altered abit but the tone of the first article made it seem like the Earthquake didn't happen yet. but that it was building up to one That's why I posted this.

Now the rewritten update talked about a 5.5 which is hardly a biggie. I'm following twitter and major news outlets to see how this develops.

Strange..



2013-03-26 13:12:21 5.0 16.51°N 98.18°W Near Coast of Guerrero, Mexico
2013-03-26 13:04:50 5.3 16.26°N 98.20°W Near Coast of Guerrero, Mexico
2013-03-26 12:54:22 4.3 15.83°N 93.91°W Near Coast of Chiapas, Mexico


Nothing really unusual for that area, I would think. Only about 4.3-5.3 in magnitude.

The earthquake struck at 13:04 GMT and was 20.5 miles deep.

The earthquake set off an alarm throughout Mexico City and caused nearby buildings to sway.

That is a moderate quake. Those are not bad. The last 5.6 we had here in SoCali we were put on alert for 24 hrs in case of a larger one....Its coming sooner than later for us.

Mexico doesn't have the same building standards as the U.S. or even Chile so any moderate quick is enough to bring buildings down there.

Nothing to see here really. It's Haiti just waiting to happen again.

It appears that not all quakes make it to the headlines.

There are earthquakes everyday all over the world. It isn't until it is in an unusual place or thousands of people die that it is news.

What will surprise me is if there is actually some 8's or 9's on April 2nd.

If so...then maybe May 17th will be really bad.
