Mexico hit by powerful earthquake
Published on Jun 24, 2020
A powerful earthquake of magnitude 7.4 struck southern Mexico's Pacific coast, killing at least five people and seriously injuring others in isolated villages, while causing damage to buildings hundreds of miles away in Mexico City.
The fatalities were near the quake's epicentre in Oaxaca and anxious residents stood outside their homes hours after the tremor as they feared deadly aftershocks.
Houses were scarred by wide cracks across walls and residents sought to clear debris from the streets. About 200 houses in the area were damaged, including 30 that were badly impacted, a local official said.
