Mexico has suffered a massive earthquake: at least five dead
On Tuesday, June 23, a major earthquake struck southern Mexico in Oaxaca, killing at least five people. The shocks were palpable hundreds of miles from the epicenter. Writes about it NPR.
According to the US Geological Survey, a magnitude 7,4 earthquake struck Tuesday morning. Its epicenter was off the Pacific coast, about seven miles southwest of Santa Maria Zapotitlan, near the seaside resort of Uatuco.
Rockfalls blocked mountain roads in the region, cutting off isolated villages.
Pemex, a state-owned oil company, said one of its employees fell off a building structure and an earthquake caused a fire at the company's facility in Salina Cruz.
Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said that by noon, 147 tremors had been recorded.
The earthquake was felt in several states and caused seismic alarm in Mexico City.
This is not the first major earthquake to shake this area in recent years. In September 2017, a magnitude 8,1 earthquake struck the southern coast, killing at least 60 people.
