The U.S. Geological Survey said that an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.4 rattled southern Mexico on Tuesday (June 23) morning. The quake was centered within the Pacific coast state of Oaxaca and was felt hundreds of miles away in Mexico City.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration warned that "hazardous tsunami waves are possible for coasts located within [621 miles] of the earthquake epicenter." That includes the coasts of Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras.
