Big *bleep* 7.5 earthquake in Mexico... https://www.ctvnews.ca/world/mexico-hit ... -1.3807394

MEXICO CITY -- A powerful earthquake has shaken south and central Mexico, causing people to flee buildings and office towers in the country's capital, and setting off quake alert systems.

Crowds of people gathered on central Reforma Avenue in Mexico City as the ground shook.

The U.S. Geological Survey put the quake's preliminary magnitude at 7.5 and said its epicenter was 2 kilometres southeast of Pinotepa in Oaxaca state. It had a depth of 43 kilometres.

When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

Interesting... it looks like they have downgraded it to a mere 7.2. Nothing to see now. 7.5 is big a$$. 7.2 is meh on the Glacial Earthquake Index.

Felt it at the Hualtaco airport this afternoon. Second we felt in two weeks. Kind of surreal feeling watching things shake about.
