Major earthquake rocks western Mexico

World Today

Two people are confirmed dead from Monday’s 7.7-magnitude earthquake in Mexico.

More than 200 buildings were damaged, most in western states near the quake’s epicenter in Michoacan.

While Mexicans are thankful for the low casualty count, the quake’s timing, on a date increasingly linked to natural disasters, has many in the country rattled.
