A strong earthquake of magnitude Mw=7.4 occurred in Central and southern Mexico on 22
January 2003 (02:06:35 UT). The focal mechanism solution showed thrust type faulting.
The rupture plane is dipping towards north. The source duration calculated close to 22 sec.
The inversion of teleseismic waves showed that the earthquake ruptured a fault with almost 60 km length
and 50 km width. Many sources are presented on the slip model.
Estimated magnitude M=7.4 based on the formula of Hara T., 2007
