Tsunami warning after magnitude 8 earthquake rocks South Mexico

The US Geological Survey (USGS) reportedly said that an earthquake of magnitude 8.1 struck off the southern coast of Mexico late on Thursday. Reports also added that this was the strongest earthquake to hit the capital since a devastating 1985 tremor that flattened swathes of Mexico City and killed thousands. Widespread, hazardous tsunami waves were possible within three hours, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said.
