Magnitude 6.8 quake strikes western Mexico days after lethal temblor

MEXICO CITY: A magnitude 6.8 earthquake struck Mexico early on Thursday, shaking buildings in Mexico City, simply days after one other robust temblor killed two individuals and broken a whole lot of buildings within the nation.
Residents of Mexico Metropolis scrambled out of their houses because the earthquake alarm sounded and buildings shuddered.
Mexico Metropolis Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum mentioned on Twitter shortly after that there have been no preliminary reviews of harm within the metropolis.
The quake, which the US Geological Survey (USGS) first measured at magnitude 7.0, was registered at a depth of 20.7 km (12.9 miles), barely deeper than Monday’s temblor.
On Monday, the anniversary of lethal earthquakes in 1985 and 2017, a magnitude 7.6 earthquake hit western Mexico, killing two within the Pacific port of Manzanillo.
