A 6.5 magnitude earthquake today hit just four miles away of Pajapita, Guatemala, and just five miles from Ciudad Tecun Uman. The quake hit at 12:30 a.m. UTC, or 6:30 p.m. local time, and could have caused major damage from happening so close to the cities. In addition, two other cities–Suchiate in Mexico (12 miles northeast) and Coatepeque in Guatemala (14 miles West)– were also nearby. The quake was on the Pacific side of the country right near the border with Mexico.

Looks like it's proximity to towns and cities might be a factor here...
