Moment of shaking ground when earthquake came in Mexico (video)


At least five people died in a massive earthquake that struck the southern coast of Mexico early Friday, prompting tsunami waves in the country that measured up to 2.3 feet.

The United States Geological Survey said that a magnitude 8.1 quake hit about 73 miles off Tres Picos, Mexico, along Mexico's southern coast.

Its epicenter was 102 miles west of Tapachula in southern Chiapas state and had a depth of about 21 miles. The quake was so powerful, it sent people fleeing from buildings 650 miles away in Mexico City.
