A 7.6 magnitude earthquake has struck Mexico.

A 7.6 magnitude earthquake struck Mexico's western coast on Monday afternoon.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador of Mexico reported that a person was killed when a fence collapsed in a mall in Manzanillo, Colima, on Monday afternoon.

At around 1 PM local time, the USGS reported the first magnitude 7.1 earthquake around 25 miles southeast of La Placita de Morelos, Mexico.

The shaking was believed to be felt in Mexico City, which is situated a short distance from the epicentre.

Officials say the Pacific coast states of California, Oregon, Washington, Hawaii, and Alaska are not at danger of a tsunami.

Small tidal shifts of up to a foot are possible along the Pacific Ocean's shoreline, while large tsunami waves of up to 10 feet above tide level are expected along Mexico's coasts.

As patients watched, a dental clinic just over 100 miles from the epicentre, near Apatzingán, was severely shaken.

According to local news sources, Mexico City was planning an earthquake drill on Monday, the anniversary of two catastrophic earthquakes. More than 260 individuals were killed by a magnitude 7.1 earthquake in 2017, while at least 9,500 were killed by a magnitude 8.0 earthquake in 1985.

Although "earthquakes" strike on the same calendar date in different years, they are simply coincidences, and such events should be dismissed as mere coincidence.

Madeline, a tropical storm in the eastern Pacific, isn't too far from the epicenter of the earthquake. A few inches of rain were expected to fall off the coast of Jalisco on Monday afternoon due to the tropical storm's outer rain bands.
