Mexico Earthquake: 7.6 & 7.9

Mexico Earthquake: 7.6 & 7.9

Mexico got rocked today with not one but TWO huge earthquakes! Initial reports are 7.6 and 7.9 on the Richter scale.  The US Geological Survey is in the practice of reducing the actual number of the earthquakes.  Meaning they could actually be higher!  The earthquake hit the Oaxaca, Mexico region. Also, there is a report of 6.2 earthquake in Indonesia!

Here is a breakdown and locations of major population centers:

136 km (84 miles) SSW of Huajuapan de Leon, Oaxaca, Mexico
162 km (100 miles) WSW of Oaxaca, Oaxaca, Mexico
170 km (105 miles) SE of Chilpancingo, Guerrero, Mexico
322 km (200 miles) SSE of MEXICO CITY, D.F., Mexico

You can see aftershocks rolling into the region as well.  Measured at 4.7, 4.8,  and 5.1.  Reports are coming in of thousands of collapsed homes.  People fled high rise buildings to the streets in large masses.  Here is raw footage being sent into us now.
