Mexico's National Seismological Service (SSN) reported a magnitude 4.2 quake in Mexico near Salina Cruz, Oaxaca, only 26 minutes ago. The earthquake hit late at night on Saturday 12 June 2021 at 11:30 pm local time at a moderately shallow depth of 40 km. 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 4.2 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include San Francisco del Mar Viejo (pop. 4,000) located 37 km from the epicenter, San Dionisio del Mar (pop. 3,100) 49 km away, San Mateo del Mar (pop. 5,700) 51 km away, Las Amilpas (pop. 8,800) 52 km away, Chahuites (pop. 9,800) 65 km away, Union Hidalgo (pop. 13,700) 67 km away, Salina Cruz (pop. 76,600) 68 km away, Juchitan de Zaragoza (pop. 74,800) 73 km away, and Santo Domingo Tehuantepec (pop. 42,100) 81 km away.
