article image6.3 magnitude earthquake strikes Mexico

By Andre C James     Apr 2, 2012 in World
The earthquake of 6.3 Richter scale magnitude struck nearby the town of Ometepec and could be felt as far away as Mexico City the country's capital.
According to the US Geological Survey the epicenter was in southern Mexico near the border of Guerrero and Oaxaca states, very close to the epicenter of a strong quake nearly two weeks ago. At least two people died in the earlier quake.
Although the 6.3 magnitude earthquake caused buildings to sway no major damage has been reported. There are no reports of casualties. "It felt strong, but thank God nothing happened to us. Everyone went back (inside) but people are still paranoid about the other one, which felt much stronger," said 30-year-old Esteban Vite in Mexico City's Roma neighborhood.
