Mexico is located on the seismically active territory. In late-May, two earthquakes of 6.1 and 5.5-magnitude struck the country, though no tsunami warning was issued at that time.
The governor of the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca stated on Tuesday that at least one person has been killed and another has been injured following a 7.4-magnitude earthquake that shook Mexico on earlier this day.
“The hospital in Huatulco is damaged, it will be necessary to move patients. According to preliminary information, one person has died after the facade of a building collapsed, another one was injured,” said Alejandro Murat Hinojosa.
