Deadly earthquake hit Mexico’s southern coast

earthquake

Deadly earthquake having 8.2 magnitude strikes off Mexico’s southern coast Thursday. Mexico President Enrique Pena Nieto said the 8.2 magnitude quake was the strongest to hit his country in a century. Officials have said that at least fifteen people were killed in the country’s south as a result of the tremor.

The quake struck late on Thursday, and was recorded as a magnitude 8.2 on the Richter scale according to Mexico’s National Seismological Service. Government officials said that at least fifteen people died in the country’s south.

President Enrique Pena Nieto said that the quake, the biggest the country has seen in a century, had caused major damage and caused 1 million people to lose power, though it has been restored to about 800,000 already.

Speaking from the National Disaster Prevention Center’s headquarters, where he was supervising the emergency response, Pena Nieto later warned that aftershocks would continue, and that one as strong as 7.2 could strike in the next few hours.

The US Tsunami Warning Center cautioned that widespread, devastating tidal waves were possible on Mexico’s coast, as well as in Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama, Honduras and Ecuador.

Shortly thereafter, authorities reported a tsunami was indeed headed towards the coast, fortunately only 0.7 meters (2.3 feet) tall. Pena Nieto then said that a tsunamis were no longer a top concern, although the town of Puerto Madero in the southern state of Chiapas was evacuated as a precaution.
