4.3 quake 19 May 1:48 am (GMT -6)
A magnitude 4.3 earthquake near San José del Cabo, Los Cabos Municipality, Baja California Sur, Mexico, was reported only 27 minutes ago by Mexico's National Seismological Service (SSN), considered the main national agency that monitors seismic activity in Mexico. The earthquake occurred at a very shallow depth of 7 km beneath the epicenter early morning on Wednesday 19 May 2021 at 1:48 am local time. 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.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc.
In Santa Anita (pop. 690) located 11 km from the epicenter, and Las Veredas (pop. 10,500) 12 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in San José del Cabo (pop. 69,800) located 19 km from the epicenter, Miraflores (pop. 1,400) 26 km away, Salinas (pop. 2,100) 44 km away, Las Palmas (pop. 11,600) 46 km away, Colonia del Sol (pop. 48,000) 46 km away, and Cabo San Lucas (pop. 68,500) 47 km away.
