Here's the 3rd update from the Mexican university (UNAM) site (http://www.ssn.unam.mx/): They changed it back to the original data (I don't know where the 2nd update came from: a foul-up by some grad student?) |
Magnitude 4.7, 10km deep, 27km SW of Cihuatlan (about 20km S of Barra de Navidad.)
Meanwhile the USGS finally listed it (http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/usc0007pqg.php):
They show it as a magnitude 4.4, 20km deep, about 50km SSW of La Manzanilla.
So take your pick. Obviously there is quite a bit of uncertainty in locating these epicenters. To us, it felt pretty strong for a 4.4 or 4.7.
