Just 25 minutes ago, a 4.7-magnitude earthquake struck near Técpan de Galeana, Guerrero, Mexico. The tremor was recorded in the evening on Monday 1 March 2021 at 8:35 pm local time, at a very shallow depth of 8 km below the surface.
The event was filed by Mexico's National Seismological Service (SSN), the first seismological agency to report it.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.7 as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should have been widely felt by almost everyone in the area of the epicenter. It might have caused light to moderate damage.
Moderate shaking probably occurred in El Chilcahuite (pop. 30) located 2 km from the epicenter.
In San Luis San Pedro (pop. 4,200) located 5 km from the epicenter, El Suchil (pop. 7,000) 21 km away, and Técpan de Galeana (pop. 15,100) 22 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Atoyac de Alvarez (pop. 21,400) located 43 km from the epicenter, and Petatlan (pop. 21,700) 56 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Ixtapa Zihuatanejo (pop. 67,400) located 88 km from the epicenter, and Acapulco de Juarez (pop. 673,500) 108 km away.
