Mexico earthquake: Strong earthquake strikes parts of Mexico. Tsunami alert issued, check the latest updates




An earthquake measuring 7.6 on the Richter scale hit Mexico in large parts of the west coast on the Pacific side. Coincidentally, two earthquakes two years earlier shook Mexico on the same day. This is the third time since 1985 that devastating earthquakes have rocked Mexico.

The earthquake occurred in the afternoon at 1:05 pm local time, according to reports from the United States Geological Survey (USGS). In Manzanillo, the coastal city of Colima reported a person died due to a wall in the mall the person visited. President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador confirmed the news of the death.

A tsunami warning was issued along the coast of Mexico, but the threat did not go beyond Mexico, and similar warnings were not issued in California and Hawaii. The threat area covers 200 miles from the epicenter.

The epicenter was around Aquila, 23 miles southeast, at a depth of 9.4 miles. The place was very close to the border between the states of Colima and Michoacan, the USGS reported.

The information confirmed that there were no other reports of damage other than a few cracks in the buildings. The Michoacan Public Security Department said reports of the damage came from the town of Colcumen.

Ireland Villa told us that some walls had collapsed in Cowayana, a coastal town near the Colima border, but people feared the tsunami warning even more. They are grateful that the tsunami did not come, and that everything was peaceful at the end of it all.

While the 2017 earthquake on the same day killed nearly 370 people with a magnitude of 7.1, the states of Puebla and Morelos were hit hard.
