Update Sun, 29 May 2022, 12:15
Significant magnitude 5.0 quake hits 74 km southwest of Tapachula de Cordova y Ordoñez, Mexico early morning
5.0 quake 29 May 6:03 am (GMT -6)
5.0 quake 29 May 6:03 am (GMT -6)
A moderately shallow magnitude 5.0 earthquake was reported early morning near Tapachula de Cordova y Ordoñez, Tapachula, Chiapas, Mexico.
According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the quake hit on Sunday, May 29th, 2022, at 6:03 am local time at a moderately shallow depth of 64 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake which listed the quake at magnitude 5.0 as well. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 5.0.
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 San Simon (pop. 150) located 46 km from the epicenter, Puerto Madero (pop. 9,600) 48 km away, Mazatlan (pop. 6,800) 55 km away, Brisas Barra de Suchiate (pop. 13,700) 63 km away, Huehuetan (pop. 7,800) 73 km away, Ciudad Hidalgo (pop. 14,600) 73 km away, Tapachula de Cordova y Ordoñez (pop. 202,700) 74 km away, Huixtla (pop. 32,000) 79 km away, and Cacahoatan (pop. 16,600) 88 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.
