An earthquake of magnitude 4.3 occurred only 24 minutes ago 8 km east of Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, Mexico, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported.
The quake hit at a moderately shallow depth of 30 km beneath the epicenter near Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, Zihuatanejo de Azueta, Guerrero, Mexico, late at night on Sunday 4 April 2021 at 11:26 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.
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.
