The coastal city of Acapulco was hit by a 7.1 magnitude earthquake on Tuesday night which sent shockwaves through the region including the country’s capital, cutting power lines and leaving the city powerless in select neighborhoods.
Mexican authorities are currently working to recover the electricity that went out in the wake of the natural disaster.
According to Mexican Officials the earthquake imposed minimal collateral damage. Nonetheless, there was still one casualty in a city west of Acapulco. It was reported that the death was caused by the falling of a lamp post when the earthquake hit.
