When did the seismic activity start, how many aftershocks did it have, where does it differ from Richter and the answers to any questions you may have asked since yesterday
How does it differ from Richter?
The earthquake that was recorded had a magnitude of 4.7 on the Richter scale, while the magnitude was 5.5. When we talk about the Richter, it is what the equipment records, while the front is the effect in the area where it falls.
How long did the strong earthquake last yesterday?
The earthquake lasted 21 seconds.
When did the seismic activity begin?
The activity started a long time ago on the 12th. There was a slowdown yesterday and this marked that tendency to have a large magnitude.
How many aftershocks have there been since yesterday?
So far we have about 62 aftershocks and the magnitude has been decreasing.
Up to a certain magnitude it is expected that there will be no effects and beyond that there will be sensitivity.
What should citizens do?
We are not in a position to give an alert a few seconds in advance. Citizens should be prepared. We live in a country where the seismic phenomenon is present, we must be organized at home, where is the safest corner or position, avoid elevators or stairs. Let's lower the machine or even the gas".
