At Least 15 people have been reported…. A strong earthquake with a magnitude of eight hit off the southern coast of Mexico Thursday night.
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the epicenter was about 62 miles south west of a town called Pijijiapan.
As a result of the quake, a tsunami warning was issued for Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Panama and Honduras, but there was not a warning issued for the West Coast of the U.S.
One witness who experienced the quake told Reuters, “I had never been anywhere where the earth moved so much.”
Mexico previously had magnitude eight earthquakes in 1995 and 1985. The ’85 quake, which hit near Mexico City, killed thousands.
There were no initial reports of deaths, injuries or damages, only the loss of power in the capital.
Mexico’s East Coast is also being threatened by Hurricane Katia.(BBC)
