This is not the first time that Mexico has suffered this type of onslaught from nature. Its geographical position keeps it under constant risk of experiencing these events. Thus, in 1985 and 2017, there were seismic movements that caused enormous destruction in the country.

On the afternoon of May 25, the National Seismological Service reported on social media that a strong earthquake had been recorded, sparking fear among users, since it was a magnitude 5.8 earthquake. This occurred northeast of Crucecita in the state of Oaxaca.

Through her Twitter account, the head of the Government of Mexico City, Claudia Sheinbaum, informed the community that this tremor didn’t require the activation of the seismic alert. All this, despite the high magnitude of the natural phenomenon.

An earthquake of slight perception is recorded in Mexico City. @C5_CDMX told me that its magnitude didn’t warrant the activation of the seismic alert in Mexico City. Protocols are activated,” she tweeted. This sparked controversy among netizens. Filed Under: Strong earthquake 5.8 Oaxaca

Immediately, some videos began to circulate on social networks, where you can see that the quake was very strong, but it also happened very quickly. The images show some objects moving on their own due to the tremor that was felt for a few seconds in Oaxaca.

“It must be automatic, not at the “consideration” of something or someone… from 5.5 the alert was supposed to be activated. Something went wrong.” “The seismic alert does NOT have a defined magnitude for its activation, there are several factors that define whether or not an earthquake requires a public alert, the system defines if an earthquake represents RISK, if it doesn’t represent a risk, it will not activate a public alert,” were some comments.
