No, definately NOT Chiapas quake. The speed of the P and S waves on these things are very fast. There is very little lag time between event and feeling it. Certainly not Chiapas quake. SW of Cihuatlan would not be Manzanillo. Manzanillo is SE of Cihuatlan. This was a good one. I have sat through hundreds of quakes in my years in Japan and on this one you could definately (at least I did) feel the P wave hit and then just a second later the S wave. I yelled "Quake" and June and Lyle were right with me. It was not like George in that Seinfeld episode where George knocks over old ladies saving himself first. That was a good one for sure.
