Yesterday Mexico was horrified with a strong tremor of 7.5 degrees on the Richter scale, which was recorded in Oaxaca, but was felt as far as Veracruz. Today a new strong earthquake in Oaxaca alerted the community, where the earth has not stopped moving.
According to National Seismological System, this June 24, almost a day after the strongest earthquake this year in Oaxaca, again trembled again at 08:43:53, with a magnitude of 4.0, located 43 kilometers northeast of Crucecita, same community in which it was presented yesterday.
