Su epicentro se ubicó cerca del puerto de Acapulco, en la costa del estado de Guerrero y registró una magnitud de 7.7 (MW), aunque el Servicio Geológico de los Estados Unidos lo registró con 7,9°. La zona centro de la República Mexicana fue la más afectada, en especial la Ciudad de México, dejando un saldo de 700 muertos y 2500 heridos.

This crater, 'The Sedan Crater', remains from the Plowshares program, the purpose of which was to test the peaceful use of nuclear explosions. The operating hypothesis was that a nuclear explosion could easily excavate a large area, facilitating the building of canals and roads, improving mining techniques, or simply moving a large amount of rock and soil. The intensity and distribution of radiation proved too great, and the program was abandoned. The “Sedan” device was thermonuclear—70 percent fusion, 30 percent fission—with a yield of 100 kilotons. The crater is an impressive 635 feet deep and 1,280 feet wide. The weight of the material lifted was 12 million tons.[Taken from the book Nuclear Landscapes, by Peter Goin]
