Earthquake in Sea of Cortez – Felt In Todos Santos

Around 1:15 pm MDT today, September 1, there was an earthquake of 6.3 magnitude in the Sea of Cortez, centered about 56 miles from La Paz, BCS. I was on the phone with Rich Friend of Ricardo Amigo Real Estate at the time and he felt his building move. In my downtown office/gallery, I did not feel any movement.
