An earthquake of magnitude 4.2 occurred only 20 minutes ago 43 km northwest of Cintalapa de Figueroa, Mexico, Mexico's National Seismological Service (SSN) reported.
The quake hit at an intermediate to considerable depth of 176 km beneath the epicenter near Cintalapa de Figueroa, Cintalapa, Chiapas, Mexico, early morning on Friday 9 April 2021 at 3:18 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.2 as well.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Ignacio Zaragoza (pop. 160, 2 km away), Raudales Malpaso (pop. 6,800, 35 km away), La Horqueta (Poblado Doce) (pop. 1,500, 39 km away), Cintalapa de Figueroa (pop. 42,500, 43 km away), Jiquipilas (pop. 9,900, 48 km away), Pomposo Castellanos (pop. 1,500, 49 km away), Ocozocoautla de Espinosa (pop. 39,200, 62 km away), Berriozabal (pop. 28,100, 71 km away), and Tuxtla Gutiérrez (pop. 537,100, 88 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
