5.7 and 4.6 earthquakes hit Guerrero, Mexico at depths of less than 30 km. The Cocos Plate tension reflects the growing dynamism of a looming catastrophe near the bottom of the Northern hemisphere that will see upheaval along the Caribbean plate and great destruction along the Cocos plate.
Update: MEXICO CITY – A moderate earthquake has shaken the Mexican Pacific coast resort of Acapulco, reportedly forcing dozens of nervous spring vacationers into the streets. No damages or injuries have been reported. The U.S. Geological Survey in Colorado reported on its website Tuesday that the quake had a magnitude of 5.5, and occurred at a depth of nearly 13 miles (21 kilometers). Mexican radio station Imagen reported that the shaking was felt strongly in the city, currently packed with Mexican families enjoying spring vacation. The radio station said the quake was especially intense because of its relative shallowness, and that it created high surf. –Yahoo News
