A 6.7 magnitude Mexico earthquake left at least two persons dead in Iguala when a house collapsed. The powerful trembler also knocked out power to part of Mexico City. People rushed into the streets as they felt the shaking.

6.7 Magnitude Mexico Earthquake Death Toll at Least OneThe 6.7 magnitude Mexico earthquake had to be shocking for residents. Laura Gonzalez said, “I was dreadfully afraid, I thought it was never going to end.” The shaking of an earthquake is one of the most terrifying things to live through because it starts unexpectedly, and it is impossible to know how long it will last.

So far, there are no reports of widespread damage in the area, but authorities are still trying to get a picture of what has happened in the quake zone. The epicenter was in the state of Guerrero, and it was at a depth of 40 miles.

It is terrible that the death toll from the Mexico earthquake is at least two, but thank goodness the damage was not greater. Hopefully residents will wake up in the morning and be able to go about their normal business.

Have you lived through a quake? If so, how did you feel the next morning when you woke up? Were you scared? Did you experience aftershocks? Were they severe?
