Preliminary reports have it as a 7.1 near Izucar de Matamoros, Puebla. Strong!

Just spoke with family in the Valle de México and they are shaken but not stirred. Thank goodness!

Be ready for aftershocks. Folks in Petatlán and Acapulco say it felt strong there.

Of course this just had to happen on the anniversary of the '85 quake. One of my earthquake apps advised me there would be simulacros today, so even though my app was alerting me "sismo detectado" over and over and my desk and chair were shaking I kept thinking "naw, I'm just imagining this" until I finally came out of my stupor of complacency and ran for my wife and chihuahua and we were both shouting ¡ESTÁ TEMBLANDO! Lots of folks felt it and were out in the street this time.

I was at the Comercial with a basket full of stuff this morning around 11am when the manager asked me to go outside because they were having an earthquake simulation. Interesting coincidence. But was walking to La Ropa when it happened and never felt a thing.
