6.3R in Mexico

An earthquake of magnitude 6.3 struck off Mexico’s southern state of Chiapas on Tuesday, the United States Geological Survey said.
There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage in the earthquake, which the agency said hit at a depth of 26 km (16 miles), and a distance of about 120 km (75 miles) west of the state’s Suchiate region.
Earlier, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre monitoring agency had put the quake magnitude at 6.2. (From Reuters)

We show above the expectation according to our global calendar that for the period 18-20 Nov. show peaks. So we were expecting an activity. This earthquake is at the souther part of Mexico and therefore the Mexico calendar when it is on the border of the data is not perfect and here we see we expected Mexico a little later in 2 days.
Below we see the accuracy of the stress map work we do, where we see how the stresses in this region predicted the region of the earthquake.
