Sinaloa. – And according to statistics, Sinaloa already had its 120th earthquake in 2022 and practically, although it was at the beginning of the day, “it happened at night” for the majority of the population that was just starting its activities.
According to the National Meteorological Service, the event was reported on Tuesday, November 15 at 5:50 a.m. 133 kilometers southwest of Navolato Sinaloa, at a depth of 6 kilometers.
The intensity was marked at 4 degrees, which although in some areas are highly perceived, on this occasion it did not activate movement reports, most likely because many were just starting the day and thought it was still sleep.
So far during the month of November, seven tremors have been registered in Sinaloa, the strongest of 4.2 degrees last day 3 at 96 kilometers west of Ahome , with a depth of 24 kilometers. October has already been surpassed in the totality of earthquakes registered for this eleventh month of the year that is halfway through.
During November there are already three earthquakes reported in Ahome, two in Guasave, one in Navolato and another in Culiacán.
Up to now, 2022 has been much busier than the previous one and this is how it has been marked from January to November, and be careful, because if the trend continues, more could arrive in the final stretch of the year:
- January: 34
- February: 9

- April: 3
- Mayo: 6
- June: 20
- Julio: 11

In case you had any doubts: Is it normal for more than two earthquakes to occur in the same place after a strong earthquake?
When an earthquake of considerable magnitude occurs, the rocks near the rupture zone are subject to rearrangement. During this process, a series of earthquakes known as Aftershocks are generated in this area , which are of lesser magnitude and can occur minutes, days and even years after the main event. The number of these aftershocks can vary from a few earthquakes to hundreds of events.
