Data for the same earthquake reported by different agencies

Info: The more agencies report about the same quake and post similar data, the more confidence you can have in the data. It takes normally up to a few hours until earthquake parameters are calculated with near-optimum precision.

User reports for this quake (6)

Alvaro Obregon, Mexico City (2 km SSE of epicenter) [Map] / Moderate shaking (MMI V) / rattling, vibrating / 1-2 s
Cdmx / Weak shaking (MMI III) / rattling, vibrating / 1-2 s : Movimiento rápido pero fuerte  
Ciudad de México / Weak shaking (MMI III) / rattling, vibrating / 1-2 s : The floor vibrated for just one second. It was like when you are on a bridge and a truck passes  
Mixcoac (2.6 km ESE of epicenter) [Map] / Light shaking (MMI IV) / single lateral shake / very short : A horizontal sudden shaking, the bathroom door, next to where I’m lying in bed, made a noise as it moved. It was brief but it felt quite clearly. I’m on a third floor.  
Alvaro Obregón / Weak shaking (MMI III) / single vertical bump / 1-2 s
CDMX (2.7 km ESE of epicenter) [Map] / Very weak shaking (MMI II) / single lateral shake / 2-5 s : Short movement
