Mexico earthquake: Death toll rises to 61


Mexico: At least people 61 people died in the 8.2-magnitude earthquake that struck off Mexico’s Pacific coast and rocked numerous southern states, according to reports.

The quake that hit minutes before midnight Thursday was strong enough to cause buildings to sway violently in the capital city more than 650 miles (1,000 kilometers) away.

The 8.1 magnitude quake off the southern coast late Thursday was stronger than a devastating 1985 temblor that flattened swathes of Mexico City and killed thousands.
