A magnitude 7.0 earthquake has struck central Mexico, killing at least 10 people and destroying hundreds of homes and businesses.
The quake struck at 5:51 a.m. local time (1451 GMT), according to the US Geological Survey (USGS).
It is the third largest earthquake to hit the US in less than a week and it is still considered a “very dangerous” event.
The USGS said that the quake was centered in the central Mexico city of Iguala, about 120 miles (193 kilometers) north of Mexico City.
According to the Mexican government, more than 200 people were killed and over 100 were injured, including 14 children.
President Enrique Pena Nieto tweeted that he is “very concerned about the possibility of more damage to public infrastructure.”
The quake also caused a chain of minor tremors in several areas in the state of Guerrero.
The capital of Igualdad, where the quake occurred, has been under a state of emergency since Tuesday.
There are also reports of damage to roads, houses and other structures.
There have been no reports of any injuries.
