Mexico Earthquake Today 2012, Massive Terremoto Hoy Strikes Acapulco

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – A Mexico earthquake today has struck Acapulco. The Acapulco, Mexico terremoto hoy, March 20, 2012, registered one of the largest temblors for Mexico in recent memory. Local officials have yet to detail damage to news.

Roughly twenty minutes ago, a massive 7.6 magnitude Mexico earthquake struck Acapulco and sections of Guerrero, Mexico. The earthquake was centered close to Ometepec, Mexico. USGS reports to news that the terremoto was not centered out to sea. Rather, the quake had a nominal depth. As result, it was felt across a wide cross section of the region.

USGS reports to news that the quake was centered only ten miles below the earth’s surface. The quake was strongest felt in the Oaxaca and Guerrero regions today.

Local news is reporting the quake was fifteen miles from Ometepec, Guerrero. The quake was twenty-six miles from Pinotepa Nacional, Oaxaca, officials confirm to news. The temblor was fifty-four miles from Tlaxiaco and one hundred miles from the town of Oaxaca. The quake, however, was only one hundred fifteen miles from Acapulco.

Today’s quake is centered close to the December 10, 2011 quake. That quake registered a 6.8 magnitude at the time. The December quake was twenty-seven miles south of Teloloapan, twenty-eight miles northwest of Zumpango.
