Strong quake rumbles near Mexico City

Fox News – February 16, 2018

A potent earthquake shook southern Mexico on Friday, a prolonged rumble that rocked buildings across Mexico City.

Originally reported as a 7.5 magnitude, the quake was later reported as a 7.2 by the U.S. Geological Survey, said an article Friday night in USA Today.

According to the Reuters news service, the epicenter was close to the Pacific coast in the southern state of Oaxaca, and had a depth of 26.7 miles (43 km), based on data from the U.S. Geological Survey. The area is already reeling from a September earthquake’s impacts.

In Oaxaca, Gov. Alejandro Murat said via Twitter that damage was being evaluated, but there were so far no reports of deaths.
