From yesterday’s earthquake, measuring 7.2 on the Richter scale, with it’s epicenter in Pinotepa Nacional, in the state of Oaxaca. It was clearly felt in Mexico City as well and things kept swaying for quite a while, although it obviously can’t be compared to last year’s devastating earthquakes. The fear people feel is all present though and very physical. .
Late last night a military helicopter crashed in Santiago Jamiltepec close to the epicenter, as among others Mexico’s Interior Minister and the Governor of Oaxaca were going to check out the damages of the earthquake. Everyone in the helicopter survived, but it killed 14 persons on the ground when crashing into two vehicles. This morning I reported about it in @ekotsverigesradio @sverigesradio 📻
