Strong 7.5 quake hits Mexico

A large earthquake with preliminary magnitude struck near San Lorenzo Mexico on Feb. 16 2018

Luis Felipe Puente, the national coordinator of civil protection, said that the quake was felt in the states of Oaxaca, Chiapas, Puebla, Michoacan and in Mexico City.

Australian teacher Benjamin Reid, who is working at an worldwide school in Mexico City, said he was running up the stairs of his 10-storey apartment building when the tremors struck and he initially dismissed them as dizziness from the exercise.

The quake was 15 miles deep, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

In September, an 8.2 magnitude quake killed at least 78 people in Oaxaca and another 16 in Chiapas, the US Geological Survey reported.

On September 7 previous year, an 8.2 natural disaster shook the nation and killed 96 people, mostly in the state of Oaxaca. A video showed people walking through a dust cloud.

Emergency management authorities said there were no reports of major damage so far. But reporters at the scene later found no evidence of a collapse at the location given.

Netanyahu has not denied receiving the gifts but said that they were a token of friendship from Milchan. In all, the merchandise was worth more than one million shekels ($A392,000), the statement said.

In Mexico City, where more than 200 people died in a large quake last fall, people streamed out of shaking buildings and into the streets. "It's all we can do", 38-year-old publicist Kevin Valladolid told AFP through tears after evacuating from his building in La Roma, in central Mexico City. The Sept. 19 quake struck closer to Mexico City.

The September 8 quake killed almost 100 people in Oaxaca and neighbouring Chiapas, but was centered about 273 miles (440 kilometers) southwest of Friday's natural disaster, Earle said.

"I'm scared", said Rojas Huerta, recalling five months ago when buildings fell as she ran barefoot into the street.

The streets of Condesa were flooded by residents fleeing their homes, including one woman wrapped just in a towel.
