I just checked the three sites that I have been looking at over the past several months.
Not one thing being said or posted for Mexico.....
It is an odd Monday...


Peace...

Buildings are being evacuated in the area,
The depth is pretty far so hopefully not to much damage,

Here's the first thing I found referring to Mexico City earthquake:

The Associated Press

Monday, April 27, 2009

MEXICO CITY — A powerful earthquake has rocked tall buildings in Mexico capital, sending office workers down stairways into the streets.




As if they aren't going through enough already...

This clears up why I couldn't find anything on the Mexico City quake...

This one was felt in Mexico City



www.reuters.com...

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico was hit by a 6.0 magnitude earthquake on Monday, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The USGS said the quake hit 19 miles south-southeast of Tixtla, Guerrero, about 150 miles south of the capital, Mexico City. It was 25.6 miles deep.

Buildings in the capital shook.

Yeah it was about 230km's south of Mexico City

However due to the magnitude it made a significant effect on the capital

That's certainly not going to help with the containment of the Swine Flu.. the conspiracy side of me is going crazy right now!!

But anyways, hopefully the damage is minimal and the deaths are non-existant.

I would say so, any fears of significant after shocks from this 6.0?

(novice = me)

No disinfo here.
Second line for some pointless posting.

Soooo, first we have the Swine Flu in Mexico. Now an earthquake, spreading chaos and unleashing the Swine Flu.

How convenient.

Un-real.

I'm running out of emotional energy to process all of this horrible news. I'm hesitant to say "What else could possibly go wrong?" because I don't want the irony to bite me on the butt.

So I'll just say "Peace" to everyone and pray for the best outcome possible.

Well considering a large portion of Mexico is on an active fault line, then its probably likely. Nothing major though.....although Im not a seismologist

But you did sleep at a holiday inn express last night?


Thanks for the update. Hopefully this will be all quake activity for the city, I can't imagine what the citizens are feeling at the moment.

This is too much at once

OMG this will worsen the swine flu. Everyone will be running on the streets, or even a hospital has to be evacuated. So people will get in contact with the infected... bad coincidence

Well not really, depends on wether or not the quake hit a region where swineflu is present. It didnt hit Mexico City, so there are no injuries or damage reported. Im not sure where Guerrero is though, not sure if its a region or a town

If you believe in that sort of thing when it comes to situations like this...

So, natural or not? Just like the flu ...

I just about fell out of my chair when I saw this thread pop up.

Those people are going through hell.

Awful to imagine, but what is next?

No, i actually meant it's a bad coincidence - nothing else

edit: It was close to mexico city, and some tall buildings were shaking. People were running on the streets
