Update Thu, 1 Jul 2021, 01:27Moderate magnitude 4.8 quake hits 48 km northeast of Pinotepa Nacional, Mexico in the evening
4.8 quake 30 Jun 8:13 pm (GMT -5)
A magnitude 4.8 earthquake near Pinotepa Nacional, Santiago Pinotepa Nacional, Oaxaca, Mexico, was reported only 13 minutes ago by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at an intermediate depth of 91 km beneath the epicenter in the evening on Wednesday 30 June 2021 at 8:13 pm 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 4.8 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 El Porvenir (pop. 460) located 2 km from the epicenter, San Juan Cabeza del Rio (pop. 1,600) 7 km away, and Zacatepec (pop. 4,900) 18 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include San Juan Colorado (pop. 5,600) located 32 km from the epicenter, Santa Maria (pop. 10,900) 36 km away, Pinotepa Nacional (pop. 29,600) 48 km away, Ometepec (pop. 24,100) 62 km away, and Heroica Ciudad de Tlaxiaco (pop. 17,500) 63 km away.
