5.2 Magnitude Earthquake Shakes 57 miles south of Mexico, and SW of Guatemala

Approximately, 39 minutes ago, a 5.2 magnitude earthquake hit 57 miles south of Suchiate, Mexico and 43 miles south-west of Champerico, Guatemala.

Early reports from people living near the quake’s epicenter say they felt a jolt shake their place of residence followed by a sustained rumble which shook the ground below.

Experts have been quite vocal with their warnings that Mexico should be prepared for a large earthquake in the short future.

There are crustal seismic activity in Guatemala, northern Venezuela, and the Cayman Ridge and Cayman Trench that indicate fault transformation and pull-apart basin tectonics.

The U.S. Geological Survey has detected 26 earthquakes so far today, 221 earthquakes in the past 7 days, 898 earthquakes in the past month, and 17,504 earthquakes in the past year.

While this report was being written the Mexico quake was rapidly followed by an earthquake approximately 3km from Bend, Oregon in the U.S.
