Magnitude 7.4 Earthquake in Oaxaca - South East of Acapulco

March 20, 2012

When it rains, it pours!

About 32 minutes ago, Oaxaca experienced a pretty strong earthquake. Telephone lines are disrupted.

Oaxaca is about 186 Kilometers, which is about 115 miles south east from Acapulco.

From what we gather, Acapulco felt the earthquake, as it measured in the 5's in intensity.

We copied the above from the USGS site, which is located here: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eqinthenews/2012/usc0008m6h/
