Strong Earthquake Strikes Oaxaca, Mexico

Posted by feww on June 30, 2010

Earthquake Measuring at Least 6.5 Mw Strikes Oaxaca, Mexico

The quake, epicentered at 16.530°N, 97.708°W, struck about 120km WSW of Oaxaca City, Oaxaca, Mexico,  at depth of 10km on Wednesday, June 30, 2010 at 07:22:27 UTC.

The earthquake struck about 100 km WNW of the epicenter of a magnitude 8.0 quake which struck the region on June 17, 1928.

This quake has the potential to trigger one or more eruptions at volcanoes  in the region.

The shock may well prove to be detrimental to oil and gas drilling activities in the  Gulf of Mexico.

As of posting, there was no report of damage or casualties, but the Moderators believe some structural damage may have occurred locally close to the epicenter, and will post further information on Fire Earth Disaster pages.
