The strong shock aroused fear in the population. On social networks, and on the web, many videos of people on the street, while the seismic alarm sirens sound. In more than one video you can see the ground swinging, and a crack as it widens and closes, as if the earth was breathing.
The seismic shock arrives in a Pase already very proven by the coronavirus emergency, in fact Mexico has registered in the last 24 hours another 4,577 cases of Covid-19, for a total since the beginning of the pandemic of 185,122. Over the past few hours, 759 deaths have been attributable to the disease, for a total of 22,584 deaths.
Tsunami fear (the anomalous wave alert has now returned). In a video, when the risk of a tsunami was still feared, it was shown how the sea water of a port for small boats was retreating after the earthquake. Fortunately, the alarm was withdrawn by the Usgs.
