A shallow magnitude 4.2 earthquake was reported early morning near Santos Reyes Nopala, Oaxaca, Mexico.
According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the quake hit on Sunday 13 December 2020 at 3:27 am local time at a shallow depth of 17 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.
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 Piedra (pop. 88) located 1 km from the epicenter, Santa Maria Tiltepec (pop. 2,200) 3 km away, El Paraiso (pop. 140) 4 km away, Santos Reyes Nopala (pop. 5,200) 4 km away, Cerro Grande (pop. 31) 4 km away, Loma Bonita (pop. 76) 5 km away, El Zanate (pop. 190) 7 km away, and San Andrés Copala (pop. 840) 8 km away.
