After the strong earthquake that was felt last Tuesday night, a 3.9 magnitude earthquake was felt this morning in the northern state of Coahuila, Mexico, adjacent to the United States, reported the news site Info 7 and the National Seismological Service.
According to information published by El Universal, a 3.9 magnitude earthquake was registered this morning in Saltillo, Ramos Arizpe and Arteaga, municipalities in the southeast region of Coahuila, without any damage having been reported so far.
FEAR AMONG THE POPULATION
There was fear among the population after the strong 7.1 earthquake that struck Mexico City and states in the center and south of the country last night. The National Seismological Service reported that the earthquake with a magnitude of 3.9 on the Richter scale occurred at 7:14:57 hours.
It was detected 17 kilometers east of the municipality of Ramos Arizpe, 5 kilometers deep. The seismic shaking was mild, but it caused loud popping, and it moved windows and doors of houses in dozens of neighborhoods in the metropolitan area when people were still asleep and woke them up. Others were preparing or were already on their way to work or school.
Earthquake in Coahuila: DAMAGE SUPERVISED
Given this, the director of Civil Protection in Saltillo, Alberto Neira, assured that the police are conducting a supervision operation and no damage has been detected. After the earthquake, the authorities reported that so far the last day of vaccination against covid has been carried out without incident.
From early and without incident, the last day of vaccination against Covid-19 is carried out, in its second dose for people between 40 and 49 years old, from AstraZeneca. What is relevant is that elements of the municipality’s firefighters fight a fire in a house on the streets of Nicolás Bravo and Simón Bolívar, in the downtown area of Saltillo.
FIRE IN FULL EARTHQUAKE
However, as a precaution, Civil Protection brigades evict residents of the place, and put them safe from flames and smoke, this action is independent of those carried out for the inspection of damage by the earthquake.
The municipal police arrested two subjects who were allegedly the ones who set fire to the property because, according to the owner of the property, he evicted them yesterday and they went to take revenge. Filed Under: Coahuila earthquake
HOW CAN I MONITOR AN EARTHQUAKE?
After a series of earthquakes and aftershocks caused by the movement that was generated last night in Guerrero, it is important that you know how to anticipate an earthquake and for that, some APPs have been created, which we will present to you below.
Yesterday an earthquake occurred in Mexico, faced with this type of natural phenomenon, it is necessary to become aware that these events will continue to occur in the country and in the world. This is why it is important to stay alert and prepared to know how to react. Therefore, it is a good idea to have apps that guide and inform. Here are three options. Filed Under: Coahuila earthquake
Earthquake in Coahuila: SKY ALERT
This app is one of the best known, and offers users the monitoring of earthquakes since, once it has detected one, it makes an alert with sound on your cell phone. For earthquakes of intensity 4 that if they are felt but are not destructive, the following will be heard: “earthquake detected”, however, in the case of a strong to severe earthquake of between 5 and 7 degrees of intensity, the following will be heard: “seismic alert”.
According to its website, the application is “the only one that sends alerts with intensity in each location, as well as with the estimated time of arrival of an earthquake in Mexico.” The use of the app is free, but there are functions and tools that require payment. Available for iOS and Android.
EARTHQUAKE ALERTS (MY EARTHQUAKE ALERTS & FEED)
This application makes seismic data from various networks and organizations specialized in seismological issues from around the world available to users, so it will be very useful if you are traveling and want to know the conditions of the Earth.
Each time there is a seismic movement, you will receive a notification on your phone, based on the locations, frequency and magnitude that you have previously chosen. Also, you can select the alert sound of the notifications, so that they do not scare you. Available for iOS and Android. Filed Under: Coahuila earthquake
Earthquake in Coahuila: MY SHAKE
In the same way that Earthquake Alerts does, this app has information from seismological sensors, which allow it to inform its users each time they detect any seismic activity. Likewise, My Shake can record both the time and the amplitude of the telluric movement.
Its operation is a little different from the two previous options, since this app records the vibrations of the environment, through the sensors included in each smartphone and later sends the data collected to its central development system, to confirm the location and magnitude of the earthquake.
Available for iOS and Android. It is important to note that in addition to consulting these apps, you must be aware of the information that the authorities provide through official channels.
