(MEXCO CITY) JUST IN: #Earthquake Report: A powerful earthquake has struck south-western Mexico near the beach resort of Acapulco, killing at least one man who was crushed by a falling post and causing rock falls and damaging buildings, authorities said #AceNewsDesk report

#AceDailyNews says that Mexico has been hit by powerful magnitude-7.0 #earthquake, killing at least one….

A powerful earthquake has struck south-western Mexico near the beach resort of Acapulco, killing at least one man who was crushed by a falling post and causing rock falls and damaging buildings, authorities said.

The magnitude-7.0 quake, which hit 17.7 kilometres north-east of Acapulco in Guerrero state Tuesday night (local time), shook the hillsides around the city, downing trees and pitching large boulders onto roads.

State governor Hector Astudillo told local television that a man was killed by a falling post in Coyuca de Benitez, a small town just west of Acapulco.

He and other authorities had earlier said there were no reports of major damage from the quake, which caused power outages in several states.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said the temblor had not caused major damages in Guerrero, the neighbouring region of Oaxaca, Mexico City and elsewhere.

In Mexico City, more than 320 km away, the ground shook for nearly a minute in some parts of the capital.

In the central Roma Sur neighbourhood of Mexico City, lights went off and scared residents rushed out, some wearing little more than pyjamas, a witness said.

Residents huddled together in the rain, holding young children or pets.

“It was terrible. It really reminds me of the 1985 quake every time something like this happens,” said Yesmin Rizk, a 70-year-old Roma Sur resident.

A massive earthquake that struck the Mexican capital in 1985 killed thousands of people.

The US Geological Survey (USGS) said the quake, initially measured at a magnitude of 7.4 and later downgraded to 7.0, was relatively shallow — only 19km below the surface — which would have amplified the shaking effect.

This rare phenomenon is known as earthquake lights (EQL). The US Geological Survey says that geophysicists differ in the extent to which they think that individual reports of unusual lighting associated with an earthquake actually represent EQL.

Mexican state power utility the Comision Federal de Electricidad said in a statement that 1.6 million users had been affected by the quake in Mexico City, the adjacent State of Mexico, and the states of Guerrero, Morelos and Oaxaca.

Patients die as severe floods hit hospital

Meanwhile, in the central Mexican state of Hidalgo severe flooding has killed 17 people at a hospital, most of whom had COVID-19.

The flooding occurred after torrential rains caused the River Tula to burst its banks, authorities said on Tuesday.

Days of heavy rain caused the flooding at the hospital in central Mexico. 

More than 40 other patients in the public hospital in the town of Tula were evacuated by emergency service workers, and an initial assessment showed about 2,000 houses had flood damage, the Mexican government said in a statement.

Hidalgo Governor Omar Fayad told local media that 15 or 16 out of the 17 fatalities were COVID-19 patients.

The media said the deaths occurred when flooding knocked out electricity at the hospital.

The epicentre of Saturday’s earthquake was about 12km (7.5 miles) from the town of Saint-Louis du Sud.The tremor was felt in the densely-populated capital of Port-au-Prince, some 125km away, and in neighbouring countries. “Lots of homes are destroyed, people are dead and some are at the hospital,” Christella Saint Hilaire, who lives near the epicentre, told AFP news agency. In a series of tweets, Prime Minister Ariel Henry said he had mobilised a team to work on the relief effort, and sent condolences to those affected. The USGS earlier warned that the earthquake could result in thousands of fatalities and injuries. Frantz Duval, editor-in-chief of Haiti’s Le Nouvelliste newspaper, tweeted that two hotels were among the buildings destroyed in the town of Les Cayes. He said the local hospital was overwhelmed. “Slowly, strongly and for very long seconds the earth shook in Haiti on 14 August, 2021 around 8:30 am,” he wrote. Photos shared on social media showed damaged buildings and piles of rubble after the quake. Naomi Verneus, a 34-year-old resident of the capital Port-au-Prince, told the Associated Press news agency she was woken up by the earthquake and that her bed was shaking.

` Earthquake Measuring 5.7 Magnitude Hits Alaska ‘

#AceBreakingNews – A 5.7 magnitude earthquake rocked south-eastern Alaska, about 73km from Haines, near Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve.

The earthquake hit on Wednesday at 11:58 GMT southwest of Haines, which has a population of over 2,500 people. The epi-center was 10km deep, according to United States Geological Survey.

The quake was first reported at a magnitude of 5.8, however it was subsequently downgraded to 5.7.

There have been no reports of casualties.

The circum-Pacific seismic belt, the earth’s most active seismic feature, brushes Alaska and the Aleutian Islands, resulting in frequent earthquakes. More than 80 percent of the planet’s tremors occur in the circum-Pacific belt, according to USGS data.

One of the strongest earthquakes in the history of Alaska occurred in the Anchorage area on March 27, 1964, according to the USGS.

The magnitude was recorded at 8.5 on the Richter scale, then recalculated to 9.2, while the shock devastated down-town Anchorage.

It was followed by a tsunami that destroyed many of Alaska’s coastal towns and spread along the West Coast of the United States and Canada, and as far as Hawaii.

One hundred and twenty-two were drowned by the ensuing tsunami waves – 107 in Alaska, 11 in California, and four in Oregon.
