A magnitude 4.3 earthquake near Crucecita, Santa María Huatulco, Oaxaca, Mexico, was reported only 29 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 moderately shallow depth of 37 km beneath the epicenter early morning on Saturday, June 4th, 2022, at 4:19 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 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 Arroyo Macalla (pop. 210) located 2 km from the epicenter, San Pedro Pochutla (pop. 13,700) 4 km away, San Roque (pop. 1,500) 6 km away, Puerto Angel (pop. 2,600) 9 km away, and Huatulco (pop. 7,400) 21 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Crucecita (pop. 15,100) located 39 km from the epicenter, Puerto Escondido (pop. 25,900) 63 km away, and Miahuatlan de Porfirio Diaz (pop. 23,900) 66 km away.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available. If you're in the area, please send us your experience through our reporting mechanism, either online or via our mobile app. This will help us provide more first-hand updates to anyone around the globe who wants to know more about this quake.
