Pakistan condoles loss of lives in Mexico quake

Mexico hit by biggest earthquake in a century

A tsunami was confirmed in Mexico with one wave coming in at three feet, according to the National Weather Service Pacific Tsunami Warning Center. With a magnitude of 8.4, the Chiapas quake is the strongest natural disaster to have hit Mexico in over a hundred years.

A massive quake hit off the shore of southern Mexico in the early hours of Friday, triggering tsunami warnings, as the country braces for a hit from Hurricane Katia.

"We are assessing the damage, which will probably take hours, if not days", said Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, in an address to the nation about two hours after the natural disaster.

At the same time, Irma strengthened back into a Category 5 storm Friday night, after weakening to a Category 4 earlier in the day. Texas and Louisiana are still reeling from the flooding and destruction left by Hurricane Harvey at the end of August.

The states of Tabasco, Oaxaca and Chiapas were the worst hit, and a rescue operation is under way to pull out people feared trapped under debris, BBC reported. 61 people until now have been announced dead and President Enrique Peña Nieto suspects at least 200 people have been injured.

The shock was also felt in the capital of Mexico City, where many people ran out of buildings onto the streets. Also, Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre issues a Tsunami Warningwhich could be hazardous and widespread waves are also possible.

The governor of Chiapas, Manuel Velasco, told local media at least three people had been killed in San Cristobal de las Casas, a city in the region. The U.S. Geological Survey reported the magnitude at 8.1, but other institutions rated it between 8.2 and 8.4.
