This week has been pretty uneventful for me, however it seems like it’s earthquake season: Japan, California, Chile, Nicaragua, and now Mexico. This morning Mexico experienced a 7.2 magnitude earthquake that was centered near Acapulco, where many Mexicans are vacationing for Easter holiday including some of my family members. It was felt in at least 6 states including Mexico City which is always vulnerable to distant earthquakes because much of it sits atop the muddy sediments of drained lake beds that quiver as quake waves hit. The magnitude-8.1 quake in 1985 that killed at least 6,000 people and destroyed many buildings in Mexico City was centered 250 miles (400 kilometers) away on the Pacific Coast.

When I found out, I texted my mom to find out if they were fine. She responded that they were and it was actually funny because most people in the building were sleeping and everyone came out to the pool area almost in their underwear. There are no reports of major damage or casualties.

Let’s move on to more cheerful subjects. I hope you enjoy this week’s links and have a wonderful weekend!
