The strongest earthquake in over a century just erupted on the west coast of Mexico, causing a tsunami watch and killing dozens of people.
At least 32 people are dead, and strangely enough, people have reported seeing lights in the sky around the area of the earthquake.
According to an article from the Daily Mail titled “Colourful flashes are seen above Mexico as buildings and street lights shake during the most powerful earthquake to hit the country in a century”:
“This is the moment mysterious glowing lights appeared in the night sky above Mexico during the most powerful earthquake to hit the country in a hundred years.
Footage shows glowing lights above what is believed to be Mexico City as fierce 8.1-magnitude tremors rattled the nation’s capital last night.”
It was an 8.2 magnitude earthquake, which shook almost the entire country of Mexico. It could be felt in Mexico City, about 600 miles from the epicenter of the earthquake.
People could be seen running out of their homes, watching buildings tremble and sway.
According to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, widespread, highly dangerous tsunami waves are coming to the coast of Mexico and possibly other nearby countries. The warning extended through all of Mexico’s coast to Central America, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Panama, Honduras, Costa Rica, and Ecuador.
