Quake Shakes Mexico City, Registering 5.4 Magnitude

Quake Ometepec Mexico City

According to Reuters, a magnitude 5.4 earthquake has recently hit Mexico City, during Friday morning.

Reports suggest that nobody was mortally wounded or injured during the event. In addition, the region’s buildings remained unaffected by the tectonic activity, including Mexico City’s airport.

The U.S. Geological Survey offered their initial assessment, suggesting the quake was approximately 6 miles from Ometepec, but quite some distance from Mexico City (190 miles).

Onlookers in the central Roma area have claimed to have been subjected to a short duration of moderate shaking.

As a safety precaution, The Economy Ministry was extracted from the area, a detail which seems to have been substantiated by local media.
