Reuters reports at least 58 people died when the most powerful earthquake to hit Mexico in over eight decades tore through buildings, forced mass evacuations and triggered alerts as far away as Southeast Asia. Most fatalities were in the picturesque state of Oaxaca. The 8.1 magnitude quake off the southern coast late Thursday night was stronger than one that hit Mexico City in 1985, killing thousands. This time, damage to the city was limited as the quake was deeper and further from the capital. All the deaths were in three neighboring states clustered round the epicenter. The head of Mexico’s civil protection agency said 45 people died in Oaxaca, 10 died in Chiapas, and in Tabasco three people lost their lives.
