Strong natural disaster strikes Mexico

Strong natural disaster strikes Mexico

Along Reforma Avenue in Mexico City, people fled office buildings as they swayed, the Associated Press reported.

The latest natural disaster comes 11 days after a huge temblor killed 96 people. While residents felt the jolt, no damage was reported.

The extent of damage or injuries was not immediately clear.

The Mexican Seismological Service said the quake was centred on Axochiapan in the central state of Morelos, some 160km from the capital.

Videos purported to show buildings shaking under the strain, and The New York Times reports that a whole office building collapsed in the neighborhood of Roma Norte.

Earlier on Tuesday, Mexico City held natural disaster drills to mark the anniversary. The hardest-hit town was Juchitan, in southern Oaxaca state. At least one large parking structure collapsed.

Pictures fell from walls and objects were shaken off of flat surfaces.

Journalist Alice Driver said the quake forced the closure of Mexico City International Airport.

Part of Mexico City is built on a former lakebed, with the soil known to amplify the effects of earthquakes hundreds of miles away.

Reports of the magnitude have been conflicting, with figures ranging from 6.8 to 7.4.

"We get these size earthquakes fairly frequently", Zachary Reeves, a U.S.
