  • Mexico City - Having been warned by the Mexican Seismic Alert System I was able to feel the entire shaking from its soft beginning through its strong development. The entire event lasted some 4 minutes in the downtown area. There were no damages in my two story house and eventhough the shaking was very strong it could not compare to the earthquakes we had 3 years ago. Given the fact that this was originated quite far from Mexico City, the movement resembled that of a boat strongly rocked by wild sea.
  • Oaxaca city, Oaxaca - Approximately 30 seconds. No damage in the house. But scary.
