Moderate magnitude 4.3 earthquake 58 km southeast of La Placita de Morelos, Mexico
4.3 quake 4 Apr 6:19 am (GMT -5)
4.3 quake 4 Apr 6:19 am (GMT -5)
An earthquake of magnitude 4.3 occurred only 19 minutes ago 58 km southeast of La Placita de Morelos, Mexico, Mexico's National Seismological Service (SSN) reported.
The quake hit at a shallow depth of 11 km beneath the epicenter near La Placita de Morelos, Aquila, Michoacan, Mexico, early morning on Sunday 4 April 2021 at 6:19 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 Chocola (pop. 71) located 17 km from the epicenter, Santa Cruz de Cachan (pop. 170) 19 km away, Paso de Noria (pop. 170) 20 km away, Maruata (pop. 590) 21 km away, Titzupan (pop. 260) 21 km away, Cuilala de Hidalgo (pop. 210) 24 km away, Colola (pop. 630) 26 km away, and San Pedro Naranjestil (pop. 630) 27 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include La Placita de Morelos (pop. 1,400) located 58 km from the epicenter.
