Moderate shallow earthquake in Chiapas, Mexico
the hypocenter (focal depth) was very shallow (1 to 10 km) depending on the reporting agency.
ER does not expect serious damage or injuries based on earlier earthquakes in Chiapas
44 km N Matías romero (pop 21,064 ; local time 12:24:41.2 2013-01-06)
22 km NE Palomares (pop 4,465 ; local time 12:24:41.2 2013-01-06)
Update 18:45 UTC : Close to Providencia. The area is a wilderness and farming area with almost no important city.

The earthquake was felt in a radius of several hundreds km.

Earthquake Chiapas, Mexico January 6 2013

Alaska earthquake yesterday and aftershocks today
Nothing special is happening. Just normal aftershocks in the 4 to 5 range. We have noticed that a tweet from yesterday’s tsunami was send at 10:14 UTC on Sunday. It came just before an aftershock of 4.5. Alaska tsunami center is sending tsunami messages for moderate quakes. Unless our system is in error (should be an exception then) it means that we have received a message in our stream. Sorry about that, but that is the disadvantage of automatic systems. Once again : nothing unusual is going on, which you will see when you click on the link. The message on Sunday comes from the Pacific Tsunami and Weather Center (PWTC) and not from the Alaska Tsunami center.

    Useful information to read this daily earthquake list
    This earthquake list covers important earthquakes in the world. If a more detailed page is present, the earthquake line will be linked to the detailed page. The multi-source approach has been setup to compare values as seismology is not an exact science and needs a lot of calculations. The reference for the time zone is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time, also called GMT). Color explanation if we add some details above the list : green color = NOT dangerous for damage or injuries, orange color = MODERATE risk for damage or injuries, red color = CONSIDERABLE risk for damage or injuries

Most unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, some below roof-line, many brought down. Environment : Cracks appear on steep slopes and in wet ground. Small to moderate slides in roadside cuttings and unsupported excavations. Small water and sand ejections and localized lateral spreading adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
    MMI IX (Violent shaking) ?
    Structures Many low standard buildings destroyed. Ordinary workmanship buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes damaged in some cases, some with flexible frames seriously damaged.
