An earthquake of magnitude 4.2 occurred early morning on Thursday, May 26th, 2022, at 2:06 am local time near Iguala de la Independencia, Guerrero, Mexico, as reported by Mexico's National Seismological Service (SSN).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a moderately shallow depth of 50 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 Coacoyula de Alvarez (pop. 2,700) located 2 km from the epicenter, Mezcala (pop. 3,800) 15 km away, Iguala de la Independencia (pop. 118,500) 33 km away, Teloloapan (pop. 23,500) 42 km away, Huitzuco de los Figueroa (pop. 17,500) 42 km away, Zumpango del Rio (pop. 24,700) 47 km away, Taxco de Alarcon (pop. 52,200) 55 km away, Chilpancingo de los Bravo (pop. 187,300) 58 km away, and Tixtla de Guerrero (pop. 22,800) 60 km away.
