Mexico's National Seismological Service (SSN) reported a magnitude 4.6 quake in Mexico near Pinotepa Nacional, Santiago Pinotepa Nacional, Oaxaca, only 20 minutes ago. The earthquake hit early evening on Friday 5 February 2021 at 7:10 pm local time at a shallow depth of 11 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.6 earthquake as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc.
