4.2 quake 22 Sep 1:39 am (GMT -5)
A magnitude 4.2 earthquake near Cintalapa de Figueroa, Cintalapa, Chiapas, Mexico, was reported only 20 minutes ago by Mexico's National Seismological Service (SSN), considered the main national agency that monitors seismic activity in Mexico. The earthquake occurred at an intermediate depth of 146 km beneath the epicenter early morning on Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021, at 1:39 am local time. 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 4.2 earthquake as well.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In San Francisco la Paz (pop. 630, 4 km away), La Horqueta (Poblado Doce) (pop. 1,500, 13 km away), Helio Garcia Alfaro (pop. 1,600, 22 km away), Poblado 10 (pop. 3,300, 36 km away), Poblado Cinco (pop. 1,300, 45 km away), Santa Maria Chimalapa (pop. 2,500, 59 km away), Raudales Malpaso (pop. 6,800, 61 km away), and Cintalapa de Figueroa (pop. 42,500, 67 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
