My local news program is reporting this earthquake near Acapulco as a 7.9 Magnitude, but the USGS website says it is a 7.6. No tsunami warning. I’ll have ongoing updates if there is damages, injuries or death. As a side note, the eldest Obama daughter, Malia, 13-years-old, is vacationing with friends and 25 Secret Service agents in Oaxaca, Mexico.
UPDATE 2:00 pm CDT: Buildings shook in Mexico City – people fled to the streets.
