Re: Earthquakes??? Any damage???

There are small earthquakes in this area almost
constantly (not many this year though). The
most memorable one we've experienced was in 2003.
There's a link below to the USGS report about this
quake which gives info on the tectonic plates
causing the problem. This current flurry of activity probably means we'll have more - hopefully not as large as the 7.8 in 2003 - that was pretty frightening. Even though there was literally no damage here in La Manzanilla, both
Colima and Manzanillo sustained serious damage from that one.
