We have used the names of Seismograph and Seismogram, because both names are used in different parts of the world. They mean the same.
Please use the seismographs in conjunction with our earthquake list and reporting. Often the seismograph indicates local events which have nothing to do with earthquakes, are being maintained or do not work. All this happens beyond our knowledge. We bring the seismograph ‘as it is’. Time is UTC time (Universal Time). Clicking on the picture will bring you to the corresponding USGS page.

Western Mexican states hit by multiple aftershocks and earthquakes

The road runs the entire length of the Baja Ca...

Baja California Peninsula - Image via Wikipedia

The Mexican western states of Sonora, Baja California, Nayarit and Chiapas have been hit the last 24 hours by multiple earthquakes and aftershocks.
Everything seems to be moving and more tectonic movements may be expected.
4 different main areas can be defined.
a) The waters of the Gulf of California
With an epicenter in the coastal waters and a limited magnitude these earthquake can be categorized as safe.
b) The Sonora desert
The greater area of the massive M 7.2 earthquake from  April 4.  The epicenter of this earthquake was located more to the north in de border area between Mexico and the United States. Most of the aftershocks have an epicenter in unpopulated (beautiful!) desert areas.
c) The subduction zone of the Islas Marias islands
Active since a couple of weeks in various places and more or less in the greater Puerto Vallarta, Manzanilla zone.
Potentially dangerous if a shallow earthquake would strike nearer to the coastline.
d) Chiapas province
Regular (mostly deep) earthquakes with Magnitudes of +5. Harmless because of the depth of the hypocenter.

M 6.9  26-08-1959   Depth 32.4 km    Jaltipan de Morelos, Mexico – killing 25 people

Jaltipan de Moreno was completely destroyed on August 26, 1959.
The earthquake that rocked the city of Jaltipan on Aug. 26, 1959 is now an example of solidarity and joint effort to jaltipanecos in difficult times.
In the city the dead toll was 7 and 200 people were injured, in addition to the destruction of almost all homes.

Thanks to a joint effort from the authorities (cheap loanes) and the local population  of Jaltipan, the town has been reconstructed very fast and is today a modern thriving city.

Spanish excerpt
El sismo que sacudió al municipio el 26 de agosto de 1959 es hoy un ejemplo de la solidaridad y esfuerzo conjunto de los jaltipanecos ante tiempos difíciles, ya que a pesar de los siete muertos y 200 heridos que dejó, además de la destrucción de casi la totalidad de viviendas, el pueblo realizó la reconstrucción de lo que es esta ciudad moderna
