Coalcomán is a word of Nahuatl origin that means "Snake" or "Snake with Hands", according to some authors. Coalcomán, Michoacán is a small, inter-montane town tucked high in the crevices of the western Sierra Madre mountains. From the flatlands of Apatzingán a two-lane highway takes you there, twisting and winding its way up toward a deep blue sky with rolling cotton clouds that hug the fir-covered crests. Long pine needles rustle in the cool mountain breeze. Horses roam here and there. This is definitely high country. Approaching Coalcomán the long limbs of bougainvilla reach out over fence tops with delicate blood-red tissue paper flowers. Just past the cemetery a sign reads, "Welcome to Coalcomán; home of illustrious men and radiant women. " The president of Municipality of Coalcoman is Mizael Gonzalez Fernandez.

1941 Colima earthquake

Located at 18.78, -103.15 (Lat. / Lng.), less than 14 mi away.
More reading: Wikipedia Article

The 1941 Colima earthquake occurred on April 15, 1941 at 19:09 UTC . The epicenter was located in the State of Michoacán, Mexico. The magnitude of this earthquake was put at Ms 7.7 or Mw 7.6. The intensities were MM X in Colima, MM VIII in Manzanillo, and MM V in Mexico City. 90 people were reported dead. The cathedral of Colima was destroyed. Many houses and public buildings in Colima, including the Federal Palace (Palacio federal) and the Hidalgo Theater (Teatro Hidalgo), were damaged. 900 or 2000 of the 8000 houses in the city of Colima collapsed, according to different sources. This earthquake was an interplate earthquake between the Cocos Plate and the North American Plate. It occurred in the Colima region of the Middle America Trench. This earthquake was very close to where the 1973 Colima earthquake occurred. From the locally recorded time intervals between the arrival of the S wave and the P wave (S-P times) and from the felt intensities, it is suggested that the rupture zone of this earthquake was larger than the 1973 earthquake and may have extended into the rupture zone of the 1985 Michoacán earthquake.

This attraction is classified as:

  • 1941 earthquakes
  • 1941 in Mexico
  • Colima
