The tremor was registered at 0538 local time (10.38 GMT) and its epicenter was located 123 kilometers southeast of Salina Cruz, in the state of Oaxaca.

The SASMEX said that the earthquake was “confirmed by 12 sensors” and the warning system “did not generate any signal because the energy developed during the first second did not exceed the established levels”.
