Mexico Earthquake

Mexico Earthquake, A powerful 6.7 magnitude earthquake shook Mexico on Saturday, killing at least one person, knocking out lights in parts of the capital and sending people rushing into the streets.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries in Mexico City but emergency services said one person was killed when a house collapsed in Iguala, a small city between the capital and the tourist resort of Acapulco.

Hundreds of people took to the streets of Acapulco, many of them tourists staying in hotels when the earthquake occurred.

“I was taking a shower and the doors started to rattle. I grabbed a towel and I had to get out running on the emergency stairs,” said one unidentified tourists wrapped in his towel.

“I was in my room taking off my shoes,” said another unidentified tourist. “I put on my sandals and I felt the jolt and I saw the lamps moving and I screamed to my brothers that it was an earthquake. I left with my parents down the stairs.”

A severe earthquake in 1985 killed thousands of people and wrecked parts of Mexico City, and many residents live with the fear of a repeat.
