Just 23 minutes ago, a 4.4-magnitude earthquake struck near Salina Cruz, Oaxaca, Mexico. The tremor was recorded early morning on Thursday 3 June 2021 at 5:16 am local time, at a shallow depth of 16 km below the surface.
The event was filed by Mexico's National Seismological Service (SSN), the first seismological agency to report it.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.4 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 Playa Azul (pop. 22) located 34 km from the epicenter, Salina Cruz (pop. 76,600) 35 km away, Colonia Juarez (pop. 2,800) 37 km away, San Mateo del Mar (pop. 5,700) 38 km away, Mazatlan (pop. 2,600) 40 km away, Santo Domingo Tehuantepec (pop. 42,100) 52 km away, San Blas Atempa (pop. 12,000) 53 km away, and Santa Maria Xadani (pop. 7,600) 54 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Juchitan de Zaragoza (pop. 74,800) located 62 km from the epicenter.
