Metro UK / Daily Mail UK, 8 Sept 2017.

An earthquake in Mexico has killed at least six people and sparked a tsunami

Six people have been killed including two children and a tsunami has been triggered after a powerful earthquake rocked Mexico.

The governor of Tabasco state Arturo Nunez said that one child died when a wall collapsed, and a baby died in a children’s hospital that lost electricity, cutting off the supply to the infant’s ventilator.

It was the most powerful earthquake to hit the country in years and sparked widespread panic.

It was so strong that it could be felt significantly in Mexico City, 650 miles away from the epicentre and caused a 2.3ft tsunami. In Salina Cruz another tsunami wave measuring 3.3ft was recorded.

Authorities in Mexico say that a hotel in Oaxaca has collapsed in the major earthquake that hit the country, but no one has been reported dead.

Civil Defense photos showed the crumbling facade of the Anel hotel in Matias Romero and split in half. President Enrique Pena Nieto said no one was reported dead at the hotel.

The earthquake was felt across Mexico, toppling houses, shaking buildings in the country's capital and leaving a million without power amid reports tremors were detected as a far away as Austin, Texas - more than 1,300 miles from the epicentre.

A small 3.3ft tsunami has already been detected in Mexico after the quake struck at 11.49pm last night, 76 miles southwest of the town of Pijijiapan, at a depth of 43 miles. But Seismologists at the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said it could grow to 12ft.

Terrified residents in Mexico City ran out into the streets after the quake struck, witnesses said. Tremors were the strongest in a hundred years, according to President Enrique Pena Nieto - greater even than a devastating earthquake in 1985 that hit the capital flattening swathes of the city and killing thousands.

The US Tsunami Warning System said widespread hazardous tsunami waves were possible within the next three hours on the Pacific coasts of several central American countries - Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama, Ecuador and Honduras.

As far as 8,700 miles away in the Philippines, the national disaster agency put the country's entire eastern seaboard on alert.

Another child was killed by a collapsing wall

It struck at 11.49pm local time when many people will have been sleeping.

‘The house moved like chewing gum and the light and internet went out momentarily,’ said Rodrigo Soberanes, who lives near San Cristobal de las Casas in Chiapas, a poor, largely indigenous state popular with tourists.

Chiapas Governor Manuel Velasco said that three people were killed in San Cristobal, including two women who died in San Cristobal when a house and a wall collapsed. He called on people living near the coast to leave their houses as a protective measure.

‘There is damage to hospitals that have lost energy,’ he said. ‘Homes, schools and hospitals have been damaged.’

Civil Defense in Chiapas said on its Twitter account that its personnel were in the streets aiding people and warned residents to prepare for aftershocks.

In neighboring Guatemala, President Jimmy Morales spoke on national television to call for calm while emergency crews checked for damage.

‘We have reports of some damage and the death of one person, even though we still don’t have details,’ Morales said. He said the unconfirmed death occurred in San Marcos state near the border with Mexico.

Lucy Jones, a seismologist in California who works with the U.S. Geological Survey, said such as quake was to be expected.

‘Off the west coast of Mexico is what’s called the subduction zone, the Pacific Plate is moving under the Mexican peninsula,’ she said. ‘It’s a very flat fault, so it’s a place that has big earthquakes relatively often because of that.’

‘There’s likely to be a small tsunami going to the southwest. It’s not going to be coming up and affecting California or Hawaii,’ she said. ‘For tsunami generation, an 8 is relatively small.’

Residents fled buildings, many in their pyjamas, and gathered in frightened groups in the street. Some neighbourhoods remained in darkness after electricity was knocked out.

There are warnings for further waves hitting Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama, Honduras, Ecuador.

The risk for Hawaii, Guam and other Pacific islands is still being assessed.

People ran into the streets as the quake rocked the area for around 45 seconds.

Buildings were violently by the earthquake which was initially measured as magnitude 8 and later revised to 8.2.

Mysterious earthquake light flashed through the sky after the quake struck while alarms could be heard going off.

An earthquake of the size experienced in Mexico is described as severe.

‘Damage slight in specially designed structures; considerable damage in ordinary substantital buildings with partial collapse. Damage great in poorly built structures. Fall of chimneys, factory stacks, columns, monuments, walls. Heavy furniture overturned.’

Civil protection officials were checking for damage in Chiapas, 650 miles from Mexico City.

At around midnight, buildings in the capital swayed strongly for more than minute, loosening light fixings from ceilings.

Helicopters criss-crossed the sky with spotlights.

Some neighbourhoods still had electricity, but others remained in darkness.

An early warning alarm was sounded seconds before the quake was felt and it lasted for around 45 seconds.

It is believed to have happened at a depth of around 31 miles.

The earthquake struck as Mexico faced the prospect of a hurricane hitting the country within the next few days.

Hurricane Katia has strengthened as as it heads to the east coast of the country, the National Hurricane Center said yesterday.

It is currently 185 miles east-southeast of Tampico, Mexico, and is on track to gain major hurricane strength when it eventually hits land.

Mexico 8.1 Earthquake

Mexico Earthquake Sets Off Mysterious Bright Lights

Mysterious green and blue flashes have been witnessed in Mexico City after it was rocked by a magnitude 8.2 earthquake.

The powerful quake triggered a tsunami warning for at least eight countries and people fled into the streets.

One person took a video of the earthquake light phenomenon which often happens after an earthquake strikes.

Little is known about why they occur and some believe it may be as a result of power supplies being hit while others claim that they have been reported for thousands of years.

Seismologist Stephen Hicks said:

‘Earthquake lights have never been proven. Simpler explanation is small explosions in electric generators and power systems.

Mexico 8.1 Earthquake Lights in The Sky


Previous Sightings of The Mystery Lights

– 1930 – Idu earthquake

– 1975 – Kalapana earthquake
– 2007 – Peru earthquake
– 2008 – Sichuan earthquake
– 2009 – L’Aquila
– 2010 – Chili earthquake
– 2014 – Sonoma County, California
– 2016 – Wellington earthquake

The lights are similar to auroras and can sometimes continue for several minutes after or before the quake.

For example in 1975, the mystery lights appeared during and immediately after the main shock in the Kalapana earthquake in Hawaii.

They come in many colours and forms and people have reported seeing them for hundreds of years but only recently have scientists come a little closer to establishing why they appear.
