M7.6 earthquake Mexico


A simple thrust earthquake at 15 km depth.  This is all very rocky terrain, and should not have a high pgv.  That smooth section of the subduction zone is ready to put out an M9 and we'll go with the 1% chance that it is a foreshock for the M9+.  I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

Mexico has a good seismic network, and we might see the records one day.
