A moderately shallow magnitude 4.2 earthquake was reported in the morning near Puerto Escondido, San Pedro Mixtepec -Dto. 22 -, Oaxaca, Mexico.
According to Mexico's National Seismological Service (SSN), the quake hit on Tuesday 22 June 2021 at 10:13 am local time at a moderately shallow depth of 39 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.2 earthquake as well.
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 Santiago Cuixtla (pop. 1,300) located 1 km from the epicenter, Santos Reyes Nopala (pop. 5,200) 7 km away, and San Gabriel Mixtepec (pop. 3,500) 12 km away.
