‘A powerful earthquake has hit Mexico, killing five people, following two strong quakes that have already killed some 400 people and wrought massive destruction across the Latin American country.
The United States Geological Survey said a magnitude 6.2 quake struck on Saturday at a relatively shallow depth, with an epicenter near Juchitan, a tropical region of Oaxaca State.
Oaxaca had already been hard hit by a massive 8.1-magnitude tremor that struck on September 7.
Another strong earthquake hit Mexico last Tuesday.
The magnitude 7.1 quake flattened dozens of buildings and killed at least 307 people. The September 7 tremor, which was the strongest to hit the country in 85 years, killed at least 98 people.
Search operations for victims and survivors from the last two earthquakes were still ongoing when the Saturday tremor hit.’
