Major 7.4 Earthquake in Mexico
#1
Quote:A powerful 7.4 magnitude earthquake has rattled the Mexican state of Oaxaca and prompted tsunami warnings for Mexico and parts of Central America.

The quake struck at 10:29 a.m. local time Tuesday about 7 miles southwest of Santa María Zapotitlán, on Mexico's Pacific Coast.

The U.S. Tsunami Warning System said tsunami waves of 3 to 9 feet above tide level were possible along Mexico's coast. Smaller waves were possible in other parts of Central and South America. No warning was issued for the United States.

    @BlancoSombrero on Twitter (known as White Hat on You Tube) said he heard booms in the video that sounded like they were blowing up underground tunnels.
Others who have been in earthquakes before said they agree; it didn't sound like any earthquake they had experienced.
He is checking with his source down there to see if he can get more information.
