A magnitude 4.6 earthquake near Los Mochis, Ahome, Sinaloa, Mexico was reported just 21 minutes ago by Mexico’s National Seismological Service (SSN), which is considered the key national agency monitoring seismic activity in Mexico. The earthquake occurred in the early evening of Friday, June 3, 2022 at 18:39 local time at a shallow depth of 10 km below the epicenter. The exact magnitude, epicenter and depth of the quake could be revised in the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations or when other authorities release their report.
A second report was later issued by the German Research Center for Geosciences (GFZ), which listed it as a magnitude 4.4 earthquake. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the United States Geological Survey at a magnitude of 4.6, RaspberryShake’s Citizen Seismograph Network at a magnitude of 4.6, and the European-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC) at a magnitude from 4.6.
Cities close to the epicenter where the quake may have been felt as a very weak quake include Cobaime (population 200) 77 km from the epicenter, Topolobampo (population 6,400) 77 km, Ejido Bachomobampo Numero Dos (population 1,400 Resident). 78 km away, Higuera de Zaragoza (9,600 inhabitants) 89 km away, Ejido Ohuira (2,100 inhabitants) 90 km away, Ahome (11,300 inhabitants) 92 km away, Mochis (2,900 inhabitants) 92 km away and Los Mochis (256,600 inhabitants) 94 kilometers away.
