A magnitude 6.0 earthquake that struck in the U.S. state of New Mexico on Tuesday night may be the most powerful in nearly a century, according to a preliminary estimate from the U,S.
The temblor struck just south of Albuquerque, and it’s unclear how much damage it caused.
The quake measured at 5.8 on the Richter scale, the UGS said.
A magnitude 7.0 quake struck near the same area in New Mexico’s Big Bend National Park on Tuesday, causing more than $50 million in damage.
The magnitude-6.0 temblors were the strongest in New York City and the deepest earthquake to strike New York since a magnitude 6 earthquake in 1908.
But the U-turn of magnitude-7.0 on Tuesday was the largest since 1908.
“The magnitude 7 is still pretty big, but the magnitude 6 was definitely quite large,” said Steve Smith, a seismologist at Rutgers University who has studied earthquakes.
The Richter Scale of magnitude is a scale of magnitude that measures the strength of an earthquake.
“It’s still a lot of damage.
But it’s not going to be much of a problem.”
Smith said that a major quake like this one can cause $50 billion in damage to a city or state, but that the damage to buildings would be far smaller.
The U. S. Geological Service said the magnitude 7 temblore struck about 8 miles (12 kilometers) south-southeast of Albuquerque.
A small but powerful quake in Mexico, on Feb. 22, 1846.
The earthquake was felt all over the United State, and there were no reports of damage in the area at the time.
“At the time the magnitude-5 was the strongest,” Smith said.
The state of Nevada, New Mexico, and the Navajo Nation in Arizona have also reported large temblores, which are more powerful than magnitude-8.0 quakes, though no deaths have been reported.
Some of the most destructive tembloring was caused by the 1908-1910 El Nino weather phenomenon.
The strong El Nina weather pattern pushed warm water from the ocean and the Pacific Ocean to the coast of California and northern Mexico, creating a pattern of earthquakes, including the one in the United Kingdom in September 2016.
