Powerful 7.3 magnitude earthquake strikes Mexico, buildings shaken in capital. There are no immediate reports of any major damage

earthquake hit Mexico
A magnitude 7.3 earthquake hit Mexico on Friday in the western state of Guerrero, north of the resort of Acapulco. The quake shook the capital Mexico City for at least 30 seconds, with building swaying as people fled on to the streets.

The city was reportedly more crowded than usual because of the Easter holiday. Despite the relative severity of the quake there are no immediate reports of any major damage. 

Mexico City is vulnerable to earthquakes because much of it is built on the muddy sediments of drained lakes, which are vulnerable to shock waves from quakes.
