Massive Earthquake Chiapas/Oaxaxa

Mexico earthquake, biggest in country's history, hits off Chiapas; 15 killed | abc7chicago.com

This is really bad. Please keep Southern Mexico in your thoughts and prayers. As the sun comes up, the news just gets worse.

This is awful- that was a big one. 8.1

I read no major tsunami waves and the time has passed now....of course aftershocks are always a possibility, too.

they get a lot of earthquakes along that southern Pacific coast and inland.... three unstable plates.

The weather radar map on my phone shows earthquakes. It shows 26 earthquakes for that region!

Northern Pacific too. It's called the ring of fire.

At least we have no serious hurricanes.

I visit Pto Escondido, Oaxaca hope they survived unscathed.

On Trip Advisor, A man who runs a dive shop we went out with for a tour once posted that Huatulco escaped pretty much unharmed.

they definitely felt it, it was very strong and lasting long time but there was no damage that he mentioned.
