Mexican Pacific Ocean region hit by 6.1. Earthquake

The earthquake had been only lightly felt. The Civil Protection agency has confirmed monitoring of the situation will continue.

Hit was Jalisco is a western Mexican state fringing the Pacific Ocean. The state is known for mariachi music and tequila, both of which reportedly originated here. The capital, Guadalajara, is peppered with colonial plazas and landmarks like the neoclassical Teatro Degollado and regal Guadalajara Cathedral, with its twin gold spires. The neighboring Palacio de Gobierno houses murals by Mexican artist José Clemente Orozco.

Seismic activity is common in Mexico due to the fact that it sits on top of the devastating Ring of Fire – a series of fragile fault lines that stretches from New Zealand, all around the east coast of Asia, over to Canada and the USA then all the way down to the southern tip of South America.

The Ring of Fire region is a chain of volcanoes and intense earthquake tremor zones along the rim of the Pacific Basin.

At this time no reports of damages or injuries are received
