It is the most powerful quake in decades to strike the region, a magnitude-6.8 earthquake that killed at least six people in the U.S. and killed more than 500 others.
And the epicenter is in northeastern Mexico, about 40 miles from the epicentre of the quake.
The earthquake occurred on Friday at 8:48 p.m. local time, the U-T San Diego reported.
“There’s been an epicenter of magnitude-7.8 just a few miles from here.
It’s the most intense earthquake we’ve ever seen,” said Mark DeCicco, director of seismology for the National Weather Service.
The quake was felt across much of southern California and parts of Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma and Oklahoma City.
The National Weather Office estimated that the quake had a magnitude of 6.9.
But it could have been bigger and there could have even been more powerful quakes that could have shaken the region.
As of Friday, there were no confirmed deaths, although there was some damage.
In California, about 20 people were hospitalized.
Some of those injured were in serious condition, said the California Highway Patrol.
The area was shut down from 9 p.:30 p.k.
Friday to midnight, with schools, businesses and office buildings closed for a few hours.
It was later reopened at 2 a.m., according to the state Department of Transportation.
There were no reports of major injuries, and there were also no reports from the city of San Francisco.
Earthquakes and landslides were common in Mexico, where many people live in remote mountainous areas that are prone to earthquakes.
“We’re going to see more landslides,” said John Schaeffer, director for emergency management at the Mexican Association of Municipalities.
“This will cause a lot of destruction in the area.”
Earthquakes are common in the region where many of the people live.
In 2016, more than a dozen people died in Mexico when an earthquake killed hundreds in the city in the western state of Guerrero.
Geological Survey reported a magnitude 6.7 earthquake near the epicENTER fault, which is part of the fault system that links Mexico to Central America.
The epicENTERY fault is located at the epicents of the Yucatan Peninsula, the Rio Grande, the Yap and the Pacific.
“That’s a major quake,” said Schaefer.
“It’s a very strong quake.”
A magnitude 6 earthquake occurred near the Mexican city of Guadalajara, which has about 100,000 people.
The city of Mexico City was shut off to the public and residents were ordered to stay inside.
The Mexican government issued a warning that was later later rescinded.
It also said the U,S.
Geological survey had been working on a study that would look into the magnitude of the next quake.
According to seismologists, there are many possible causes of these earthquakes, including the formation of the crust of the Earth, faults, seismic activity, landslides and the influence of volcanic activity.
But the United States Geological Survey said it was more likely the next earthquake will be caused by a fault rupture that triggered a tsunami in the Pacific Ocean.
