Mexico hit by a 7.4 magnitude earthquake

"We sincerely hope that nothing serious has happened," President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador tweeted.

The epicenter was located in the state of Michoacan (west).

"So far no damage is being reported," Mexico City Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum said on Twitter.

In the capital, residents took to the streets again when the alarm sounded, barely half an hour after an anti-seismic exercise.

"We didn't think it was true! But it is. It's impressive that today, once again, the earth is shaking so strongly," Karina Suarez, 37, told AFP in the center. of the capital.

An anti-seismic exercise is organized every year in Mexico City by the authorities on the occasion of the double anniversary of the two major earthquakes of September 19, 1985 and 2017.

On September 19, 2017, a magnitude 7.1 earthquake killed 369 people.

On September 19, 1985, an earthquake of magnitude 8.1 devastated the center of Mexico City, killing more than 10,000 people, most of them in the capital.
