Update Wed, 29 Jun 2022, 07:33
Moderate tremor of magnitude 4.3 just reported 55 km southwest of Crucecita, Mexico
4.3 quake 29 Jun 1:05 am (GMT -6)
4.3 quake 29 Jun 1:05 am (GMT -6)
An earthquake of magnitude 4.3 occurred early morning on Wednesday, June 29th, 2022, at 1:05 am local time near Crucecita, Santa María Huatulco, Oaxaca, Mexico, as reported by Mexico's National Seismological Service (SSN).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a shallow depth of 16 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.3 as well.
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 Arroyo Tres (pop. 260) located 29 km from the epicenter, Puerto Angel (pop. 2,600) 29 km away, San Pedro Pochutla (pop. 13,700) 37 km away, San Roque (pop. 1,500) 42 km away, San Miguel Figueroa (pop. 1,100) 43 km away, and Chacalapa (pop. 2,000) 47 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Huatulco (pop. 7,400) located 50 km from the epicenter, Crucecita (pop. 15,100) 55 km away, and Puerto Escondido (pop. 25,900) 81 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.
