A intermediate magnitude 4.2 earthquake was reported in the morning near the town of San José de las Flores, Mexico.
According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the quake hit on Wednesday 11 November 2020 at 10.14 am local time at an intermediate depth of 120 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include San José de las Flores (pop. 1000) located 7 km from the epicenter, Constitución Mexicana (pop. 1,200) 7 km away, Jaltepec de Candayoc (pop. 1,800) 7 km away, Tierra Negra (pop. 600) 9 km away, Los Fresnos (pop. 900) 9 km away, Isla (pop. 26,300) 83 km away, Ixtepec (pop. 23,200) 87 km away, and Acayucan (pop. 47,000) 90 km away.
