NEW: we're learning that the #earthquake #terremoto in #Mexico moments ago was a *thrust* quake.

A #tsunami does appear possible in #Mexico. Evacuate vertically/inland if in coastal Colima, Michoacán and Guerrero.

Appears Cocos or River Plate slipped beneath North American.
BREAKING: A magnitude 7.6 #earthquake #terremoto just struck western Michoacán, #Mexico.

It was shallow (10 kilometers deep). We are still waiting to find out whether it was a thrust quake w/tsunami danger or a lateral strike-slip (sideways movement, lesser risk). pic.twitter.com/ShQfAgiX29

I looked it up to be sure, but I thought that was a thrust fault quake- whoa! Tsunami alert.

Se sintió fuerte acá en Guadalajara.
Wow -- 7.6 magnitude earthquake in Mexico.

It "appears Cocos or River Plate slipped beneath North American" plate.

I was in both the mag 6.9 Loma Prieta and the mag 6.7 Northridge earthquakes where sections of bridges fell and houses collapsed. Can't imagine a 7.6.
Holy hell I had lucky timing. I got back from near that area in Mexico late last night 😐😐😐
