    Strong earthquake shakes Mexico - CNN.com



    MEXICO CITY, Mexico (AP) -- A magnitude 6.4 earthquake shook southern Mexico on Tuesday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, but there were no immediate reports of damage.

    The quake gently swayed buildings in Mexico City, and it was felt hundreds of miles to the east along the Gulf coast, according to local radio stations.

    The temblor struck at 6:50 a.m. and was centered in the region of Oaxaca, the USGS said.

    In the southern city of Tuxtla Gutierrez, many people fled into the streets and then lingered outside their homes, fearing aftershocks.

    "It was horrible," said Cecilia Gomez, standing with her family outside her home. "It really scared me."

    Daniel Roque, of southern Chiapas state's civil protection agency, said some residents reported panic attacks, but no damage was registered.

              I know it is. My grandma lives in Mexicali and I have an aunt in Brawley, they said it was pretty scary.
