Powerful M6.2 earthquake off Jalisco, Mexico follows swarm of 100 earthquakes along the Mexican coas

Today, within 15 minutes, a major M6.2 earthquake and two strong to moderately strong tremors (M5.5 and M4.6) hit off the coast of Jalisco, Mexico.

According to available information, the epicenter of the major quake was located 91 kilometers southwest of San Patricio, at a depth of 33 kilometers.

The region of Jalisco was hit by more than 25 earthquakes since beginning of June 2016 with two strong earthquakes of M5.6 and M5.1 on June 1, 2016.

Within the last three days, the seismic activity along off coastal Mexico is elevated with more than 100 earthquakes along the Middle America Trench.

So far, neither casualties, nor damage have been reported. No tsunami warning issued yet.

Although Mexico Mexico is one of the world’s most seismically active regions, this increased seismic activity is kind of preoccupating. Will it propagate to the North along the coast of the US?

Get prepared if you aren’t already for the Cascadia big quake. It may happen faster than we think!
