Posted on April 12, 2012


A strong earthquake has hit Mexico, shaking buildings and sending people running out of offices onto the streets of the capital.

The US Geological Survey said the 7.0-magnitude quake was centered off Mexico’s Pacific coast

Earlier, a magnitude 5.9 earthquake struck off the coast of Oregon and was followed a minute later by a smaller quake off the coast of central California.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said the quakes were unlikely to trigger a tsunami.
