Earthquake near Cancun Mexico

Two more earthquakes shook southern Mexico today 20/10/2017, further rattling a country still coming to grips with the devastation from stronger temblors earlier this month.

A 6.1 magnitude earthquake Saturday morning was centered in Cancun state near Matias Romero, a town about 275 miles southeast of Mexico City, the US Geological Survey said. Roughly speaking, the epicenter was between the centers of this month’s two more violent earthquakes — the 7.1 magnitude temblor that hit closer to the capital, and the 8.1 magnitude quake that struck off the southern Pacific coast, near Playa del Carmen state.
