It was not the “big one,” but big enough.
Last week’s 7.5 magnitude earthquake, with its epicenter in the state of Oaxaca, badly shook Mexico City on Tuesday, killing at least six people in Oaxaca, 300 miles to the Southwest.
There were no deaths reported in Mexico City and minimal damage, but buildings swayed, sending many scurrying into the streets. The calamity brought back memories of the 1985 earthquake that killed an estimated 10,000 people in Mexico City, an event I covered as a young TV reporter in California.
