UPDATE: The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issues tsunami threat for Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras following strong quake in southern Mexico

EARLIER: MEXICO CITY, June 23 (Reuters) - A very strong earthquake hit southern Mexico on Tuesday, shaking buildings in the center of the capital Mexico City hundreds of miles away and sending hundreds of people fleeing their homes into the streets.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake's magnitude was 7.7, while Mexico's seismological institute put its strength at 7.1. Quakes of such size can be devastating.

The earthquake was centered in the southern state of Oaxaca, the Mexican institute said.

Reuters witnesses in Mexico City saw no initial signs of injuries or damage. (Reporting by Frank Jack Daniel; Writing by Alistair Bell Editing by Howard Goller and Chizu Nomiyama)

My son in laws parents live in Mexico City
His father was back in his office getting some files to take home as he is out of his govt office due to Covid.
His building has some damage and he is home now. Everyone is very afraid.
Mexico is more than twice the distance from the quake compared to Ixtapa/Zihua. My son in laws estimate.

Didn't feel a thing and there is no tsunami alert. However folks need to be alert for replicas.
