Magnitude 4.2 earthquake strikes near Cintalapa de Figueroa, Cintalapa, Chiapas, Mexico
4.2 quake 1 Aug 12:25 am (GMT -5)
4.2 quake 1 Aug 12:25 am (GMT -5)
An intermediate magnitude 4.2 earthquake was reported after midnight near Cintalapa de Figueroa, Cintalapa, Chiapas, Mexico.
According to Mexico's National Seismological Service (SSN), the quake hit on Sunday 1 August 2021 at 12:25 am local time at an intermediate depth of 136 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. 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.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Nuevo San Juan (pop. 52, 9 km away), La Horqueta (Poblado Doce) (pop. 1,500, 35 km away), Santo Domingo Zanatepec (pop. 7,200, 49 km away), Cintalapa de Figueroa (pop. 42,500, 56 km away), San Pedro Tapanatepec (pop. 7,400, 59 km away), El Espinal (pop. 7,600, 60 km away), Jiquipilas (pop. 9,900, 63 km away), and Chahuites (pop. 9,800, 67 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
