Earthquake Strikes Southern Mexico
MEXICO CITY — A 7.5-magnitude earthquake struck Mexico’s southern Pacific Coast on Friday night, according to the United States Geological Survey.

The quake was reported at 5:39 p.m. local time, shaking buildings in Mexico City, more than 200 miles away, where the memory of the Sept. 19 earthquake that killed hundreds is still fresh. The tremors left tall buildings swaying for more than two minutes.

The quake’s epicenter was 33 miles northeast of Pinotepa, in Oaxaca State.

In the capital, residents streamed from buildings onto the streets, texting to see if their loved ones were safe, launched by a sense of dread just a few months old.

Last September’s seismic eruption has left people frightened at the slightest tremor, and the tears in the faces of those who endured the last major quake were easy to spot on the streets of Condesa, a neighborhood hard hit the last time around.
