A substantial 6.5-magnitude earthquake shook the state of Guerrero, Mexico at 7:47 p.m. local time on Saturday night.
The epicenter of the quake was located 103 miles south-southwest of Mexico City and 87 miles north of Acapulco, one of the biggest resort areas in Mexico.
Although not an extremely strong tremor on the Richter scale, the Mexico quake was responsible for three deaths, including a 12-year-old. One death occurred due to a partial building or house collapse, another occurred when a rock fell on that's person's vehicle, according Notimex, a news agency in Guerrero. It is unclear how the minor died, but it seems the child may have fallen from on top of a food stall or truck.
No widespread damage was reported by government officials in Mexico, which was a relief. In 1985, an 8.1-magnitude earthquake killed 10,000 in the country.
Since the Richter Scale increases logarithmically, meaning that a 7.0 earthquake is 10 times stronger than a 6.0 earthquake. Therefore, the 1985 tremor was 16 times stronger than the one that shook Mexico on Saturday night.
Electricity outages were reported in some places, and clean up efforts have begun for minimal damage. The weather will cooperate with rescue workers with no rain in the forecast. Temperatures during the day will be in the 80s to near 90 with nighttime lows in the 70s.
