Buildings in Mexico City shook for more than a minute after the country's strongest earthquake since 1985 struck 108 miles east of Acapulco. There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties from the 7.9-magnitude earthquake, though office workers as a precaution evacuated high-rise buildings in Mexico City and power was knocked out in several of the capital's neighborhoods. Crayton Harrison talks with Mark Crumpton about the quake on Bloomberg Television's "Bottom Line."
I was waiting to board a plane at the Benito Juarez International Airport, Terminal 1, Section D, Gate 30, around 12 noon on Tuesday, March 20, 2012, when the 7.4 quake hit Mexico City. As you may know, Mexico City (DF) was rocked by an 8.0 quake in 1985, that devastated the Centro Historico killing 9000 people. The quake I felt was just one jolt that rocked the floor and quickly dissipated. In retrospect, I realize the structures at the airport were designed to absorb earthquake shock, but all airport functions stopped. Electricity shutdown, then came back on in about 10 seconds. All plane fueling immediately ceased. The runway was shutdown and checked for cracks leaving approaching planes in a continuous circling pattern for approximately 30 minutes. I had just flown in from Puerto Escondio, on the Oaxacan Coast. I imagine it was felt much stronger there.
MEXICO EARTHQUAKE magnitude 7.4 quake rocks southern Mexico. (墨西哥南部發生7.4 級強烈地震) A strong earthquake damaged hundreds of homes in southern Mexico Tuesday and rattled residents hundreds of miles away in the nation's capital. The quake had a magnitude of 7.4, according to the US Geological Survey, and its epicenter was about 15 miles (25 kilometers) east of Ometepec, Guerrero. Mexican authorities reported the magnitude of the quake as 7.8. At least 500 homes in the southern coastal state were damaged, Gov. Angel Aguirre told reporters. Authorities were still surveying damage Tuesday evening, Poire said. Reports differed about the earthquake's impact. Officials reported that at least 800 houses had collapsed in the town of Igualapa, the Guerrero state government said in a statement. Later Tuesday, the head of Guerrero's civil protection department said officials had confirmed 200 damaged homes in the town. That number could increase when assessments of the area continue Wednesday, he said. Residents rushed into the streets after feeling the temblor in Mexico City. Tourists and residents also felt the earthquake in the resort city of Acapulco, located about 100 miles (200 km) from the quake's epicenter. Earthquakes are a frightening experience for the more than 20 million residents who live in the sprawling metropolis, where about 10000 people perished after a massive quake in 1985.
Planetary Circumstances for Historic Mexico Quakes Historic World Earthquakes earthquake.usgs.gov "Since 1973, the seismically active coast has been rocked by 15 major quakes magnitude-7 or larger. The deadliest occurred in 1985 when a magnitude-8 struck, sending shock waves to Mexico City that killed thousands. The latest quake was smaller - with a preliminary magnitude of 7.4 - and struck about 300 miles south of the 1985 quake at the boundary where the Cocos plate dives beneath Mexico. Unlike in 1985, Tuesday's quake did not severely damage the capital, mainly because it wasn't as large and did not release as much energy.
A 7.4-magnitude earthquake struck Mexico on Tuesday, unleashing panic as it damaged hundreds of buildings and caused homes in the capital to bounce like "trampolines". Office workers fled into the street when quake shook Mexico City for more than a minute. Cell phone lines went down, building were evacuated, traffic snarled and the stock exchange had to suspend trading early. The governor of the southwestern state of Guerrero, Angel Aguirre, said he had received reports of 500 homes damaged, with some of them knocked down, but he gave no more details. The tremor was one of the strongest since the devastating 8.1-magnitude earthquake of 1985, which killed thousands in Mexico City. No deaths were reported on Tuesday and the quake caused no major disruptions to air travel or to oil installations, but it scared many residents. Martha Suarez, an Argentine living in the capital's Roma neighborhood said she had never known anything like it. "My TV set fell over, the building felt like it was on a trampoline. This one was like no other I have felt before," Suarez said, holding her little dog close. Emergency services said 800 houses were damaged in Guerrero state, many of them in Ometepec, near the epicenter of the quake. Officials in Guerrero, which is home of popular Pacific beach resort Acapulco, could not say if buildings had collapsed. In the neighboring state of Oaxaca, 68 mud-brick houses were damaged and five people were injured, one of them seriously, in the hardest hit ...

Office workers fled into the street when the 7.4-magnitude quake shook Mexico City for more than a minute. Cell phone lines went down, buildings were evacuated, traffic snarled and the stock exchange had to suspend trading early. The quake hit hardest in the southwestern state of Guerrero, where around 800 houses were damaged, officials said. The state governor Angel Aguirre said he had reports of homes being knocked down, though state authorities could not confirm this. The tremor was one of the strongest to hit the country since the devastating 8.1-magnitude earthquake of 1985, which killed thousands in Mexico City. Still, no deaths were reported on Tuesday and there were major disruptions to air travel or to oil installations. But it scared many residents and temporarily cut off electricity to some 2.5 million users in the capital. Martha Suarez, an Argentine living in Mexico City's Roma neighborhood said she had never known anything like it. "My TV set fell over, the building felt like it was on a trampoline. This one was like no other I have felt before," Suarez said, holding her little dog close. Scores of the houses damaged were in Ometepec, a town close to the epicenter of the quake in Guerrero, the state that is home to the popular Pacific beach resort Acapulco.

Mexico earthquake: 7,4 Earthquake Shakes Mexico 20/03/2012 A strong 7.4-magnitude earthquake hit central and southern Mexico on Tuesday, damaging some 800 homes near the epicenter and swaying tall buildings and spreading fear and panic hundreds of miles away in the capital of Mexico City. One of the strongest to shake Mexico since the deadly 1985 temblor that killed thousands in Mexico City, Tuesday's earthquake hit hardest in border area of southern Oaxaca and Guerrero states, where Guerrero officials confirmed that some 800 homes had been damaged, with another 60 having collapsed. Hours after the shaking at noon local time, there were still no reports of death or serious injury, even after a less powerful, magnitude-5.1 aftershock was felt in the capital and several other aftershocks near the epicenter in a mountainous rural region. "It was very strong, very substantial," said Campos Benitez, hospital director in Ometepec, about 15 miles (25 kilometers) from the epicenter. Guerrero Gov. Angel Aguirre, who is from Ometepec, was headed there to survey the damage and ordered emergency crews and civil protection to the area to help with the damage. The state did not say how many were displaced. In Mexico City, frightened workers and residents poured into the streets of the capital. Telephone service was down in the city and throughout the area where the quake was felt and some neighborhoods were without power, according to Mexico City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard, who set up a ...
A powerful 7.4 magnitude earthquake has hit southwest Mexico, damaging buildings and forcing evacuations in the capital. The quake struck Guerrero state, about 15 miles from the city of Ometepec. It was followed by a strong aftershock that were felt in Mexico City where office workers fled into the street. Telephone lines went down, hospitals were evacuated and traffic jams built up within moments. Mexico City mayor Marcelo Ebrard said on Twitter he could see no damage as he flew overhead in a helicopter. He added the water system and other "strategic services" appeared to be running normally. And Mexico's president, Felipe Calderon, also said on his Twitter account there were no reports of serious damage. The governor of Guerrero state, Angel Aguirre, said he had received reports of 500 homes damaged, with some of them knocked down. "It was very strong but we didn't see anything fall," said Irma Ortiz, who runs a guesthouse in neigbouring Oaxaca. US President Barack Obama's oldest daughter, Malia, was reported safe while on holiday with a school group in Oaxaca. In the Pacific coast beach resort of Acapulco, tourists ran out of cafes and restaurants, a local resident said. At first the quake was thought to have a 7.9 magnitude but this was downgraded by the US Geological Survey (USGS). In 1985 an 8.0 magnitude earthquake struck Mexico City, killing over 10000 people and damaging hundreds of buildings.

Mexico City (CNN) -- A strong earthquake rattled residents in southern Mexican resort towns and the nation's capital Tuesday, but there were no immediate reports of serious damage or injuries. The US Geological Survey reported the quake had a magnitude of 7.4. The epicenter was about 15 miles (25 kilometers) east of Ometepec, Guerrero, the USGS said, and its depth was about 12.4 miles (20 km). More than an hour after the quake, residents of town were feeling aftershocks, said Francisca Villalva Davila, the city's comptroller. "There are many cracked ceilings, many houses that collapsed," she told CNN en Español. 'Expect aftershocks from Mexico quake' Quake strikes near Guerro-Oaxaca, Mexico About five out of every 10 houses in the municipality, where about 50000 people live, saw significant damage, the comptroller said.

Officials said at least three people died, but there were no reports of widespread damage. The US Geological Service initially estimated the quake at magnitude at 6.8, but downgraded it to 6.7 and then 6.5. A quake of that magnitude is capable of causing severe damage, although the depth of this temblor lessened its impact. Credit AP News News Link: www.washingtonpost.com
earthquake.usgs.gov A major 6.7-magnitude earthquake struck Mexico on Saturday, the US Geological Survey said, with the quake strongly felt in the capital Mexico City and southern Guerrero state. The temblor occurred at 7:47 pm (0147 GMT Sunday), with the epicenter located about 166 kilometers (103 miles) southwest of Mexico City, at a depth of about 65 kilometers, according to USGS. The epicenter was located about 133 kilometers north of the large beach resort city of Acapulco, on the country's Pacific coast. The Pacific Tsunami Warning center said in a statement that "a destructive Pacific-wide tsunami is not expected" and that there was no threat to the US state of Hawaii. There were no immediate reports of damage or injury in Mexico City, where thousands of pilgrims were congregating to celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The quake sent hundreds of people celebrating upcoming Christmas festivities at the Telephone Workers Union in the heart of the city into the streets in a panic, an AFP reporter witnessed. Much of Mexico lies on the Pacific Ring of Fire, where most of the world's earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur. A historic 8.1-magnitude quake struck off Mexico's Pacific coast in 1985, and while it was centered some 350 kilometers from Mexico City, it devastated the capital, killing at least 10000 people. www.hindustantimes.com commons.wikimedia.org commons.wikimedia.org commons.wikimedia.org
Strong Earthquake rattles Mexico MEXICO CITY Dec 11 (Reuters) - A powerful 6.7 magnitude earthquake hit Guerrero state in southwest Mexico, rattling buildings as far away as the capital Mexico City. Reuters reporters in Mexico City said the earthquake seemed to go on for an unusually long period. There were no immediate reports of damage but residents ran out of buildings and gathered in the streets outside. "It felt very strong. All the emergency services have been activated," Marcelo Ebrard, Mexico City's mayor, said on his Twitter account. The earthquake struck at 7:47 pm (0147 GMT Sunday) in the southwestern state of Guerrero and was 40 miles deep, the US Geological Survey reported. "I was on the fifth floor when I felt it. It was a very strong shake," said Mexico City resident Amor Lajud. "My dogs started barking. I just rushed out for the exit and got out. Lajud lives in an apartment building in the Condesa neighborhood of Mexico City, which suffered serious damage in a devastating 1985 earthquake. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said a destructive tsunami was not generated by the quake.

This was a scary time. Buildings toppled, the grounds cracked-open, and people were buried alive under rubble. Candle light and flashlights were our only source of light. Phone lines, electricity, nor fresh water were available as we'd lost all resources. This year, 1985, was when solidarity really came into fruition. EVERYONE: children, adults, and the elderly ALL helped in unloading supplies trucks from the Red Cross, volunteered to clear rubble, and helped set-up tents for the incoming help. Mind you, I lived in a smallar town, Gomez Farias, in the state of Jalisco, with houses no taller than two stories high. The tallest building was the town church. So, we didn't have large high rises topple over as in the larger cities, but many houses were made of adobe which crumbled to dust. Pictures I put together in this presentation are from larger cities where horrible, horrible domino-effects took place, yet still affected us all. September 19, 1985, is forever burned in my mind and I will remember all those lost - about 10000. Blessings to the relatives of the individuals lost. You're not forgotten.

The computational science expertise at the Science and Technology Facilities Councils (STFC) Daresbury Laboratory is playing a key role in enabling researchers at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), to develop a tool that will make it possible to estimate the likely impact of large magnitude earthquakes at specific locations, before they happen. This video shows a simulation of an earthquake. Led and funded by the Institute of Engineering of UNAM, the project has closely studied the propagation of seismic waves through the earths crust during a number of major earthquakes, including the Magnitude Scale (Ms) 8 earthquakes that heavily damaged Mexico City in 1985 and the Great Sichuan Earthquake in China in 2008. Using this background experience, Daresburys computational scientists have been working with UNAM on the further development and optimisation of the simulation code for use on the worlds leading computer systems. As well as looking at past events, the work is capable of studying ground motions from hypothetical earthquakes in vulnerable regions, and identifying where the ground shaking shocks would be at their greatest, should the earthquake occur. For more information about this work see www.stfc.ac.uk
