Strong 6.2 magnitude quake shakes central Mexico

5.8-magnitude tremor strikes Mexico

5.8-magnitude tremor strikes Mexico

A strong new natural disaster shook Mexico on Saturday, causing fresh alarm in a country reeling from two even more powerful quakes this month that have killed almost 400 people.

The secondary quake registered a magnitude of 6.2, with an epicenter in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The quake hit in a region of Mexico that was most shaken by an 8.1 magnitude natural disaster that hit earlier this month as well.

The new quake also swayed buildings in Mexico City, which is trying to recover from a magnitude 7.1 temblor that struck on Thursday, killing at least 295 people.

"It feels lifeless", said Mariana Aguilar, 27, a hostess at a bar and restaurant who stood waiting for guests yet to arrive.

No new damage was immediately reported, but rescue efforts were suspended in areas affected by Tuesday's quake to allow authorities to see if the new tremors would put workers at risk, Luis Felipe Puente, the head of Mexico's civil protection agency said.

One of the most seismically active countries in the word, Mexico has been hit hard by earthquakes this month.

Rescue operations are still under way to save those are feared trapped under rubble. "And there are moments when you're a little calmer".

"It's that you get to a point when you're so tense, when they don't come out to give us information", she said.
