Deadly 7.6 magnitude earthquake shakes Mexico hours after nationwide public exercise



A 7.6-magnitude earthquake struck off the west coast of Mexico on Monday afternoon.

Mexico's President Andres Manuel López Obrador confirmed Monday afternoon that a man was killed after a fence collapsed at a shopping center in Manzanillo, Colima.

The US Geological Survey said it initially recorded a strong quake about 25 miles southeast of La Placita de Morelos, Mexico, that struck just after 1 p.m. Central Time.



The quake is said to have been felt as far inland as Mexico City.


Officials said no tsunamis were expected in California, Oregon, Washington, Hawaii, or Alaska.


However, tsunami waves of up to 10 feet above tidal level are possible along some coasts of Mexico, while slight tidal surges of up to a foot are possible along the coasts of the Pacific Ocean.

Patients at an Aptzingen dental office, located just 100 miles from the epicenter of the earthquake, noticed that the room shook violently.

According to local reports, Mexico City had planned earthquake drills on Monday afternoon to mark the anniversary of two deadly earthquakes. In 1985, an 8.0 magnitude earthquake killed at least 9,500 people, and in 2017 a 7.1 magnitude earthquake killed more than 260 people.

Tropical Storm Madeline is not far from the place of origin of the earthquake in the eastern Pacific. The tropical storm's outer rain bands are forecast to bring several inches of rain off the Jalisco coast on Monday afternoon.
