Significant 5.4 quake hits near Ometepec, Guerrero, Mexico
5.4 quake 19 Mar 9:06 pm (GMT -6)
5.4 quake 19 Mar 9:06 pm (GMT -6)
Mexico was shaken near Ometepec, Guerrero, by an earthquake of magnitude 5.4 only 12 minutes ago, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported.
The quake hit at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter near Ometepec, Guerrero, Mexico, in the evening on Friday 19 March 2021 at 9:06 pm local time. 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 5.4 earthquake 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 Yoloxochitl (pop. 3,200) located 4 km from the epicenter.
In Ometepec (pop. 24,100) located 36 km from the epicenter, and Ayutla de los Libres (pop. 15,400) 43 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Tlapa de Comonfort (pop. 47,000) located 82 km from the epicenter, Pinotepa Nacional (pop. 29,600) 89 km away, Chilapa de Alvarez (pop. 31,200) 99 km away, Chilpancingo (pop. 187,300) 117 km away, Chilpancingo (pop. 187,300) 117 km away, and Acapulco de Juarez (pop. 673,500) 127 km away.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available. If you're in the area, please send us your experience through our reporting mechanism, either online or via our mobile app. This will help us provide more first-hand updates to anyone around the globe who wants to know more about this quake.
