Another earthquake hit Mexico today at 1:14pm (18:14 GMT), this time the quake had a magnitude of 7.1 and has been registered in central Mexico. According to the Mexican National Seismological Service, the epicenter has been located around Axochiapan, State of Morelos, some 77 miles (125 km) away from Mexico City and 450 miles (720 km) away from Puerto Vallarta.

The earthquake caused serious damage in the states of Morelos, Puebla and Mexico City, cracking and making some buildings collapse, in a day that unfortunately coincided with the anniversary of the devastating 1985 quake of the Mexican capital city and curiously earthquake drills were conducted in cities around Mexico, including Puerto Vallarta.

Fortunately, in Puerto Vallarta and the Riviera Nayarit this new earthquake went unnoticed and no damages were reported by the local authorities. What is more, according to institutions like Protección Civil of Puerto Vallarta, no Tsunami alerts have been issued by the Tsunami Alert Center, so there’s nothing to worry about in our region.

Vallarta · Nayarit remains totally safe and thus far there should not be any incidents. However, we recommend you to follow instructions of local and state authorities and keep informed on any updates from Protección Civil of Puerto Vallarta and the Mexican Government.

If you want to help the people affected by this and the previous quake (September 8), you can do so by taking basic necessities to institutions like DIF or places like Starbucks or you can donate money online through secure platforms like Google.
