MEXICO CITY – A strong earthquake rattled southern Mexico early Wednesday, killing at least one man who was crushed beneath a rafter that fell from his roof.
The magnitude-6.2 quake was felt as far north as Mexico City, where people fled homes and hotels in their pajamas. City officials reported no injuries or significant damage.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake was centered in a sparsely populated, mountainous area of Oaxaca near the southern Pacific coast.
