Mexico Mexico Earthquake, Strongest in a Century, Kills Dozens

The most powerful earthquake to hit Mexico in 100 years struck off the nation’s Pacific Coast late Thursday, rattling millions of residents in Mexico City with its violent tremors, killing at least 32 people and leveling some areas in the southern part of the country, closer to the quake’s epicenter.

About 50 million people across Mexico felt the earthquake, which had a magnitude of 8.2, the government said.

Mexico Powerful Earthquake Devastates Central Mexico, Leaving Dozens Dead

Thirty-two years to the day after an earthquake killed thousands of people in Mexico, a powerful quake rattled the country's central region Tuesday. In its preliminary assessment, the U.S. Geological Survey said the magnitude 7.1 earthquake's epicenter was just over 3 miles east-northeast of Raboso, in the state of Puebla, some 75 miles southeast of Mexico City.
