An earthquake of magnitude 4.8 occurred only 20 minutes ago 151 km south of Ciudad Obregón, Mexico, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported. The quake hit at an intermediate depth of 40 km beneath the epicenter early morning on Saturday 24 October at 4.11 am local time. The magnitude, exact epicenter location and depth of the quake are likely to be revised within the next hours as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
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.
Towns or cities near the epicenter that are likely to be affected include El Aguajito (pop. 2,400) at a distance of 89 km with weak shaking, Las Grullas Margen Derecha (pop. 1,400) at a distance of 90 km with weak shaking, Los Mochis (pop. 214,600) at a distance of 126 km with weak shaking, and Ciudad Obregón (pop. 258,200) at a distance of 151 km with weak shaking.
