A strong earthquake hit Mexico last night at 11:49 pm (12:49 am EDT ; 0449 GMT Friday), which was registered off Mexico’s southern coast. According to the Mexican National Seismological Service, the magnitude-8.2 quake had its epicenter in the Pacific Coast of Chiapas, some 800 miles (1,300 km) southeast of Puerto Vallarta and 600 miles (1,000 km) away from Mexico City. The earthquake affected some states in Mexico, especially Chiapas and Oaxaca, as well as Mexico City.

Fortunately, the earthquake didn’t affect Puerto Vallarta and the Riviera Nayarit, where the temblor went almost unnoticed and no damages were reported by the local authorities. Although a minor Tsunami alert was issued at the immediate aftermath of the earthquake, the Puerto Vallarta Civil Defense as well as the mayor Arturo Dávalos issued a statement this morning, announcing that the Tsunami Warning Center of the Mexican Secretariat of the Navy confirmed all possible risk for the coasts of Jalisco and Nayarit had passed.

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.
