International News: Acapulco shaken by 5.0 magnitude earthquake

Posted: Sunday, February 18, 2024. 3:40 pm CST.

By Horace Palacio: A magnitude 5.0 earthquake hit near the Mexican resort town of Acapulco on the Pacific coast on Saturday afternoon, the country’s national seismological service reported. Despite the tremor, which was felt in the capital, prompting evacuations after the earthquake alarm sounded, Mexico City Mayor Marti Batres confirmed on social media X that no damages were reported.

The quake, while causing momentary concern, did not result in any immediate reports of injuries or structural damage. Mexico, prone to seismic activity due to its geographical location, has robust measures in place to alert residents of such events. Saturday’s response in Mexico City highlights the effectiveness of these systems in ensuring public safety amidst natural disasters.

Officials are monitoring the situation closely, advising residents and tourists to stay informed and prepared for any potential aftershocks.
