The agency Servicio Sismológico Nacional (SSN) reported a 4.1-magnitude earthquake in Mexico 30 minutes ago. The earthquake struck Villa de Tututepec de Melchor Ocampo, 50 km northwest of Puerto Escondido, Mexico at a shallow depth of 14km.
Since the earthquake has just occurred, the exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports.
Towns or cities close to the epicenter of the quake most likely felt a weak shaking. These include Santiago, Rio Grande, Jocotepec, La Luz and Oaxaca.
