Mexico City: Strong earthquake tremors were felt in Mexico on Tuesday. Due to the loud voice, people came out of their homes. Five people have been confirmed dead due to the earthquake. Among the dead was an employee of the National Oil Vibration Pemex.
The intensity of the earthquake can be gauged from the fact that its vibration was felt for hundreds of miles. The Richter scale earthquake recorded a magnitude of 7.4. According to the American Geological Survey, the epicenter of the earthquake was found near 43 miles of Oaxaca State and 26 kilometers below the ground surface. This hilly place is very famous for coffee. After the earthquake, the country’s largest oil refinery was closed for some time.
The buildings were shaken hundreds of miles away due to the vibration. People came out of the houses in panic and came to the streets. Several churches including about 30 buildings were damaged. A dome of the church bowed down. In the video that surfaced, water was seen coming from the roof bridge. People were frightened to see the land split into two parts. At the time of the earthquake, 30-year-old Miguel Candelera was working on his computer. “When the ground started moving, I ran out with my family but had to stay in the middle of the street as only rocks were visible on the way,” he said.
He told that seeing this scene, it became difficult to move forward. The street looked exactly like Chivgam. According to scientists, an earthquake of magnitude 7 on the Richter scale is believed to be the cause of the devastation. This results in loss of life and property. The 7.1 magnitude earthquake in 2017 caused massive destruction in southern Mexico. There was a massive loss of life and property with the death of 355 people. After the earthquake on Tuesday, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued a tsunami warning. However, he later retracted his statement and said that the danger was averted.
