Last night we were again awakened by the house shaking. Not as long or as strong as Monday's quake, but definitely an attention getter. This one was also felt in Mexico City where it caused a couple of deaths. Those poor folks in the region of Coalcomán, Michoacán as well as in Tecomán, Colima, many who are sleeping outdoors for fear or because their homes were damaged.

We also had a relatively small 3.7 quake at 4:47 AM centered in Zihuatanejo.

I'm surprised there's been such little news outside of Mexico about all the quakes and the situation in that region, but then even Puerto Rico seems to hardly be getting any serious attention in the English-language news media even though it's U.S. territory. Hmmm...

News of the Quake with some footage was on my local news channel. Also carried by national news.

No damage reported in our region that I'm aware of. Two people were killed in Mexico City from last night's earthquake.

Small amount of news about quake but the Trump investigation, Russian Troops pulling back, demonstrations in Moscow, raising interest rates, migrants being sent from the south to sanctuary cities in the north and the northern cities law suits against Florid, Puerto Rico gets slammed again and again and again. And lets not forget that Ryan Reynolds bought a futbal team in Wales... There is a lot of crap going on these days and an earthquake with small damage and only a few unfortunate casualties can not make page 2.

That reminds me of the story of Claud Cockburn, a writer who for a while was at the Times of London.


It has been claimed that during his spell as a sub-editor on The Times, Cockburn and colleagues competed (with a small prize for the winner) to write the dullest printed headline. Cockburn only once claimed the honours, with "Small Earthquake in Chile, Not many dead".
