Friday, February 16, 2018, 7:43 PM - A magnitude 7.2 earthquake shook Mexico Friday, causing buildings to sway and terrified residents to run out into the streets.

Preliminary reports tagged the quake as a 7.5, but that was later downgraded.

There is no tsunami threat.

The earthquake occurred at 5:39 p.m. local time, 2 km southwest of Pinotepa, Oaxaca. Tremors could be felt in several states across country.

Residents as far away as Mexico City, some 400 km from the epicentre, reported feeling the quake.

 

Damage reports have not yet been released.

Videos were quickly uploaded to social media sites.





In September, hundreds of people were killed when a magnitude 7.1 earthquake shook Mexico City.
