August 22, 2013 MEXICOA magnitude 6.2 earthquake struck Mexico’s Pacific coast today (Aug. 21), shaking buildings in the resort town of Acapulco. The quake was felt as far inland as Mexico City. The temblor hit at 7:38 a.m. local time (8:38 a.m. ET), about 60 miles (100 kilometers) east of Acapulco. The earthquake was centered at a depth of about 18 miles (30 km), initial reports estimate. A magnitude-5.3 aftershock followed 24 minutes after the initial temblor, according to the United States Geological Survey. No major injuries or damage have been reported in Mexico City, where an earthquake early warning system prompted building evacuations, according to the Associated Press. Strong shaking was reported in Acapulco. Schools have been closed for the day. Building walls cracked in Acapulco, damage was reported at three hospitals, and a cement gate at a military building collapsed, according to news reports. –Live Science

    Okay, NOW! is the time to start preparing for a “BIG ONE!!!” here in Southern California, especially, the Los Angeles area. If we weren’t sure before, we are now! Obviously, the Tectonic Plate that the San Andreas is part of, IS moving! AND, since we have NOT had a significant event on this fault for almost two hundred years (even longer than that for a “GREAT QUAKE!”), we are simply…OVERDUE!
