The Weather Channel reports:
A powerful 7.4 magnitude earthquake has rattled the Mexican state of Oaxaca and prompted tsunami warnings for Mexico and parts of Central America. The quake struck at 10:29 a.m. local time Tuesday about 7 miles southwest of Santa María Zapotitlán, on Mexico’s Pacific Coast.
The U.S. Tsunami Warning System said tsunami waves of 3 to 9 feet above tide level were possible along Mexico’s coast. Smaller waves were possible in other parts of Central and South America. No warning was issued for the United States. A journalist in Mexico City said the quake was felt there, nearly 500 miles away.
