Specialists have indicated that this series of movements arise from the El Farallón Falla, which has maintained the displacement of places, but they clarified that they are not high risk. 

However, there have been nervous breakdowns among some people, and even cracks in walls, broken glass and in Los Mochis a connate of fire after the movement of a gas cylinder, which fortunately the inhabitants of a house were able to control.
