A strong intraplaque earthquake of magnitude 7.1 hit central Mexico, in the Puebla region / southeast of Mexico City on 19 September at 18:14 UTC / 13:14 local, and 51 km deep.
According to the USGS, focal mechanisms indicate that the earthquake occurred on a diving fault with stretches to the southeast and northwest, near the boundary between the Cocos and North American tectonic plates ; the Cocos plate subducts here with a ratio of 76 mm per year, in a northeasterly direction.
The intensity of the earthquake is estimated at VII in the city of Puebla. Earlier reports revealed about 250 killed and many material damage.
