Another Big Earthquake Just Hit Mexico: Report

The US Geological Survey just revealed that a 6.1 magnitude earthquake struck southern Mexico on Saturday morning, rattling a country still coming to grips with the devastation from two stronger temblors earlier this month.

Saturday’s quake was centered in Oaxaca state, about 275 miles southeast of Mexico City, CNN reports.

This is the third violent earthquake to hit Mexico this month. The epicenter was between the 7.1 magnitude temblor that hit Tuesday closer to the capital, and the 8.1 magnitude quake that struck September 8 off the country’s southern Pacific coast, near Chiapas state.

A 6.1 magnitude quake can produce strong shaking and considerable damage to poorly built structures and slight to moderate damage in better-constructed buildings, the USGS says.

The two earlier quakes killed hundreds of people and turned buildings into dust and debris in parts of Mexico. At least 298 people have been reported killed in Tuesday’s quake; nearly 100 were reported killed in the September 8 temblor.

This is a developing story.
