The 5.0 magnitude earthquake occurred off the shores of the coast of Baja California Sur at 08:44:37 a.m., local time to the event. The city of Cabo San Lucas was 114 miles from the epicenter. The USGS recorded the location at 21.816°N, 108.437°W. Since the earthquake was far enough offshore, there was not any reports of people feeling the tremor.
The second 5.7 magnitude earthquake happened at 11:38:01 a.m. (local time) in the Michoacan region of Mexico. The nearest city Arcelia, Guerrero, was only 43 miles away from the epicenter. Mexico City was only 128 miles from the earthquake. The USGS received reports of people feeling it in Mexico City as weak to light shaking for the most part. Some people closer to the epicenter reported sustaining light to moderate damage.
