Quake kills at least 1 per­son in Oax­aca

Austin American-Statesman - - THURSDAY BRIEFING -

MEX­ICO CITY — A strong earth­quake rat­tled a sparsely pop­u­lated, moun­tain­ous area of Oax­aca near Mex­ico’s south­ern Pa­cific coast, killing at least one man who was crushed be­neath a rafter that fell from his roof. The mag­ni­tude-6.2 earth­quake was felt as far north as Mex­ico City. Of­fi­cials were still try­ing to as­sess the quake’s im­pact in the re­mote area, but said they didn’t think there was ex­ten­sive dam­age.
