Magnitude 4.9 earthquake strikes near Ocos, Ocós, San Marcos, Guatemala

An earthquake of magnitude 4.9 occurred in the morning on Friday, May 6th, 2022, at 10:51 am local time near Ocos, Ocós, San Marcos, Guatemala, as reported by the United States Geological Survey.
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a shallow depth of 10 km. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. 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 Mexico's National Seismological Service (SSN), which listed it as a magnitude 4.7 earthquake. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake at magnitude 4.9, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 4.9, and the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) at magnitude 4.6.
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 Ocos (pop. 9,500) located 89 km from the epicenter, Brisas Barra de Suchiate (pop. 13,700) 89 km away, Champerico (pop. 7,800) 93 km away, La Libertad (pop. 4,500) 97 km away, and Ciudad Tecun Uman (pop. 11,400) 108 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Pajapita (pop. 8,200) located 118 km from the epicenter, and Flores Costa Cuca (pop. 12,000) 121 km away.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available. If you're in the area, please send us your experience through our reporting mechanism, either online or via our mobile app. This will help us provide more first-hand updates to anyone around the globe who wants to know more about this quake.

If you did NOT feel the quake although you were in the area, please report it! Your contribution is valuable to earthquake science, seismic hazard analysis and mitigation efforts. You can use your device location or the map to indicate where you were during the earthquake. Thank you!

Data for the same earthquake reported by different agencies

Info: The more agencies report about the same quake and post similar data, the more confidence you can have in the data. It takes normally up to a few hours until earthquake parameters are calculated with near-optimum precision.
