Found this one as 4.0 on the NEIC website right at the end of yesterday's list.

NEIC actually posted a moment tensor. was a small thrust quake with compression direction N.Atlantic-Sierra Madre mexico.

Small magnitude and shallow depth indicates it may have been a response to isostatic uplift.

Have a nice day: Ag
