Mexico was shaken near Guaymas, Sonora, by an earthquake of magnitude 5.3 only 24 minutes ago, the United States Geological Survey reported.
The quake hit at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter near Guaymas, Sonora, Mexico, early evening on Tuesday, September 27th, 2022, at 7:18 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 Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS), which listed it as a magnitude 5.3 earthquake as well. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) at magnitude 4.8, the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake at magnitude 5.3, and the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 5.3.

Generally quakes of this magnitude are recorded by more than one agency and the results can vary, with subsequent reports that come in after the first one often showing more accuracy.
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 Mulegé (pop. 3,900) located 63 km from the epicenter, Santa Rosalia (pop. 11,800) 98 km away, Bahia de Lobos (pop. 2,900) 99 km away, Loreto (pop. 14,700) 108 km away, Guaymas (pop. 113,100) 114 km away, and Empalme (pop. 42,500) 122 km away.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available.
