Three days after a 7.6 magnitude earthquake… Another 6.8 earthquake hits Mexico


Recently, a series of earthquakes occurred in the ‘Ring of Fire’ in the Pacific Rim orogeny such as Taiwan and Japan. In Mexico, another 6.8 earthquake occurred three days after a 7.6 earthquake.

A video was also released of the 7.6 earthquake that shook even Death Valley in the United States, which was more than 2,000 kilometers away at the time.

Shocked by the earthquake, he ran out of the house.

“Are you all okay?” “Everything is fine. Thank you.”

Another earthquake occurred in Mexico around 1:16 a.m. local time on the 22nd.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the magnitude was 6.8, while the National Earthquake Agency in Mexico measured it to be 6.9.

One resident fell down the stairs while evacuating and suffered a head injury and died.

Large and small damage followed, such as damage to bank buildings and landslides on coastal highways.

Government officials believe it to be an aftershock of a magnitude 7.6 earthquake that killed two people on Monday (19th).

At that time, the earthquake shook as far as Death Valley National Park in the United States.

A natural phenomenon called ‘desert tsunami’ was captured in ‘Devil’s Hall’, a desert cave in the national park.

In the video released by the park on YouTube, even though it is a freshwater puddle in the cave, it makes a loud noise and shows waves up to 1.2m high.

“It’s a pretty big earthquake somewhere. I’ve never been here during an earthquake.”

This phenomenon occurred 22 minutes after the earthquake, and Death Valley is 2,400 km away from the earthquake site.
