2020 – Year of disasters: Strong 7.4 magnitude earthquake strikes southern Mexico, tsunami warning issued | The Extinction Protocol

Mexico City (AFP) – A powerful 7.4 magnitude earthquake struck southern Mexico on Tuesday, triggering a tsunami warning along Central America’s Pacific coast and as far south as Ecuador. The epicenter was near Crucecita, in the southeastern state of Oaxaca, but the shock wave was felt as far away as Mexico City, some 700 kilometers (430 miles) distant, where it sent frightened residents rushing into the streets. The U.S. Geological Survey reported that the quake struck with a magnitude of 7.4, at a depth of 23 kilometers. After initially publishing a reading of 7.1, the Mexican Seismological Service revised its figure to 7.5.
