4.3 quake 9 Dec 8:00 am (GMT -8)
According to Mexico's National Seismological Service (SSN), the quake hit on Thursday, December 9th, 2021, at 8:00 am local time at a very shallow depth of 6 km. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.3 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Bahia de los Angeles (pop. 590) located 80 km from the epicenter, and La Libertad (pop. 2,800) 95 km away.
