Earthquake's Magnitude was 7.6, why earthquakes are coming in Mexico only on 19 September

A 7.6-magnitude earthquake struck off Mexico's central Pacific coast on Monday, the anniversary of the first two devastating earthquakes. Mexico was hit by a devastating earthquake in 2017, in which more than 350 people died. Some students in a school were also killed in this devastating earthquake. A prayer was being held in his memory, when the ground started shaking again and people came in panic.

US tsunami warning alert contradicted

According to the US Geological Survey, the epicentre of the quake was 37 kilometres (23 mi) southeast of Aquila, near the border of the states of Colima and Michoacan, at a depth of 15.1 kilometres (9.4 mi). The magnitude of the earthquake was initially reported as 7.5.  Michoacan's Department of Public Safety said there were no immediate reports of significant damage in the country other than some cracks in buildings in the city of Colcomán. 

Mexico's National Civil Protection Agency said the Navy's Tsunami Center had not issued an alert because no change in sea level was expected due to the location of the quake's epicentre. Although this contradicted the US Tsunami Warning Center's alert, the US Tsunami Warning Center said dangerous tsunami waves could occur along coasts within 186 miles (300 km) of the quake's epicentre.

Earthquake occurred twice on same date

Mexico has had earthquakes twice on the same date. The first devastating earthquake occurred in 1985, while the second devastating earthquake occurred in 2017. Thousands died in the September 19, 1985 earthquake, while the September 19, 2017 earthquake killed more than 350. People are in panic due to the earthquake once again on the day of 19th September. Scientists are also surprised at why earthquakes are happening again and again on this date.
