Mexico's National Seismological Service (SSN) reported a magnitude 4.2 quake in Mexico near San Vicente la Piedra only 25 minutes ago. The earthquake hit early afternoon on Tuesday 24 November 2020 at 2.59 pm local time at a shallow depth of 27 km. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter. Weak shaking might have been felt in San Vicente la Piedra (pop. 100) located 2 km from the epicenter, Napite (pop. 500) 3 km away, Union Buenavista (pop. 200) 5 km away, Amatenango del Valle (pop. 4,700) 5 km away, Teopisca (pop. 12,100) 8 km away, San Cristóbal de las Casas (pop. 129,000) 32 km away, and Las Margaritas (pop. 103,400) 52 km away.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Tuxtla (pop. 481,100) located 79 km from the epicenter.
