Within the past hour, Mexican residents experienced a large magnitude M6.6 earthquake. It occurred at 16:14 hrs UTC (or, 10:14 am CST) at a depth of 42 miles. In the map shown below, the colored lines represent how much shaking could be felt during the earthquake. The “hotter” colors experienced a great deal of shaking as expected – they are locations near the epicenter; “cooler” colors indicate that lighter shaking was felt but at much greater distances away from the earthquake.
