Earthquake of 6.4 magnitudes trembled the City Mexico

A strong earthquake of 6.4 magnitudes has convulsed the city Mexico on Thursday. All Mexican citizens fled away from their houses into the streets of Mexico. A powerful temblor agitates the southern Pacific coast of Mexico.

The quaver had a magnitude of 6.4 and had an epicentre about 15 kilometres (9 miles) deep north of Tecpan de Galeana and about 277 kilometres (171 miles) south-west of Mexico City, according to the US Geological Survey. There were no reports of any serious injuries in Mexico till now, the government official said.

People were running on the roads far away from high buildings, but hospitals, airports and public transportation were operating normally, city authorities said.  

When I felt earthquake, immediately I thought about my wife and children said an Engineer. Lira said. “It felt very strong. We hope there wasn't any damage.” businesswoman Carmen Lopez told AP: "That was just too scary."   

Mexico lies on top of three continental plates and after some differences of time it is flustered by quiver. 
When the earthquake struck in the city Mexico, Finance Minister Luis Videgaray was mid-speech at the National Palace.  
In 1985, at least 10,000 people were killed in Mexico City by a magnitude 8.1 earthquake.
