4.3 quake 19 Mar 7:30 am (GMT -6)
An earthquake of magnitude 4.3 occurred in the morning on Friday 19 March 2021 at 7:30 am local time near Cintalapa de Figueroa, Cintalapa, Chiapas, Mexico, as reported by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at an intermediate to considerable depth of 151 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. 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.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Nuevo San Juan (pop. 52) located 11 km from the epicenter. In Santa Maria Chimalapa (pop. 2,500, 54 km away), Santo Domingo Zanatepec (pop. 7,200, 54 km away), Cintalapa de Figueroa (pop. 42,500, 57 km away), San Pedro Tapanatepec (pop. 7,400, 63 km away), El Espinal (pop. 7,600, 64 km away), Jiquipilas (pop. 9,900, 64 km away), and Raudales Malpaso (pop. 6,800, 67 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
