A strong magnitude 6.0 earthquake occurred at 14:56:07 (UTC) on Friday, April 13, 2007, in the Guerrero region, Mexico, 65 km  NNW of Acapulco, at a depth of 28.8  km.

Location     17.398°N, 100.099°W



A strong earthquake of magnitude 6.0 shook Mexico early on Friday, sending thousands of tourists in Acapulco fleeing into the streets in panic and knocking out electricity as far away as the capital.
There were no immediate reports of injuries from the quake, centred in the Pacific coastal state of Guerrero.
Tourists, many of them in nightgowns and pajamas, were evacuated from their hotels in Acapulco, where 20,000 homes lost electricity.
Power also went down in some areas of Mexico City, which was devastated by a 8.1 magnitude earthquake in 1985 that killed around 10,000 people.
Inhabitants in the capital's central Tlatelolco district, badly hit 22 years ago, swarmed out into a main square. Mexican radio said the windows of some homes there were broken.

Sunday's earthquake was the largest in the eastern Gulf of Mexico in 30 years.
The rare "midplate" earthquake was caused by pent up energy in the plate.
Scientists are intrigued by Sunday's temblor because the USGS recorded a magnitude 5.2 earthquake in the same spot on February 10th 2006.

Friday's 5.9-Richter-scale earthquake, with its epicentre in the Mexican state of Michoacan, caused a landslip on the Morelia-Lazaro Cardenas Highway in that state, but little serious damage elsewhere.

According to Michoacan police spokesman, Lino Hernandez, a landslide occurred close to the 21st Century Bridge, and although earth reached the Highway, it caused no damage or injuries.
The Bridge did show some signs of cracking, but this was due to the early opening of the floodgates of the nearby El Infernillo Dam.
No serious damage or victims had been reported.
Mexico's National Seismology Service said that the earthquake happened at 9:30 a.m. local time (14:30 GMT), at a depth of 51 km, and that Michoacan town Huemato was closest to the epicentre.
The earthquake was felt in the country's capital, Mexico City.

Mexico's last serious earthquake was in 1985, when an 8.1-degree quake killed some 10,000 people and caused massive structural damage.
