Strong Magnitude 6.5 Earthquake Hits Mexico Killing at Least 2 People

By Hannah Masterson

A strong 6.5-magnitude earthquake has hit southern Mexico last night, killing two people.

The earthquake struck in Guerrero state at 7:47 p.m. local time, about 100 miles southwest of the capital, Mexico City, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The earthquake was strongly felt in Mexico City were people ran onto the streets after buildings began shaking.

The epicentre was over 100 miles away from Meixco City

The depth of the quake was 40 miles indicating a very shallow earthquake causing much damage to the local area.

The earthquake lasted around three minutes.

Two people were killed during the quake when a rock fell on a vehicle, while another was crushed by a collapsed house. Despite this the country is believed to have escaped major damage.

There were no immediate reports of major damage in the capital, but several areas were without power.

“I was dreadfully afraid, I thought it was never going to end,” Laura Gonzalez, who was in Mexico City when the quake struck, told Reuters news agency.

Earthquakes are not a surprise in this area as the San Andres Fault in California has been linked to cross the border into Mexico.
