“An earthquake of magnitude 5.8 struck the Michoacan region in Mexico on Tuesday, a day after two people were killed in another powerful quake. Monday’s earthquake, measured at a magnitude of 7.6, struck on the anniversary of two previous earthquakes that caused enormous damage and killed hundreds or thousands of people in 1985 and 2017. … Mexican authorities are urging calm following social media rumours concerning volcanic activity following Monday’s earthquake. The centre monitoring the Colima volcano said in a statement on Twitter on Tuesday morning that the volcano ‘is calm’ and urged people to ‘remember not to spread rumours and stay calm at all times.'” (09/20/22)
