4.2 quake 30 Nov 1:46 am (GMT -6)
A moderately shallow magnitude 4.2 earthquake was reported early morning near Huatulco, Mexico.
According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the quake hit on Monday 30 November 2020 at 1.46 am local time at a moderately shallow depth of 50 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 Huatulco (pop. 7,400) located 22 km from the epicenter, Santa Maria Xadani (pop. 1000) 27 km away, Crucecita (pop. 15,100) 35 km away, San Pedro Pochutla (pop. 13,700) 36 km away, Boca Vieja (Barra Boca Vieja) (pop. 200) 38 km away, Barra de Cuatunalco (pop. 200) 38 km away, and Miahuatlan de Porfirio Diaz (pop. 23,900) 45 km away.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Puerto Escondido (pop. 25,900) located 84 km from the epicenter.
