  • Mexico earthquake: Tsunami warnings triggered, 5 killed

A magnitude 8.1 quake struck off the southern coast of Mexico early Friday - raising fears of a tsunami and causing at least two dozen deaths, according to reports.

Authorities began confirming death counts Friday morning, hours after the 8.1-magnitude quake hit Pijijiapan along Mexico's southern coast, just before midnight Thursday.

The U.S. Tsunami Warning System reports that tsunami waves have been observed, and that waves reaching more than three meters above the tide level are possible along some coasts of Mexico.

The 8.2-magnitude quake, which hit the nation's Pacific Coast late on Thursday, was felt by about 50 million people across the country.

A tsunami warning was put in place after the quake hit Mexico's southern coast.

Mr Pena Nieto said on Friday evening in a televised address that at least 61 people were killed - 45 in Oaxaca state, 12 in Chiapas and 4 in Tabasco - and he declared three days of national mourning.

Waves over 3 m are said to be expected for parts of the Mexican coast, while waves between 0.3 and 1 m could hit the Cook Islands, Ecuador, Fiji, rench Polynesia, Guatemala and Kiribati.

Those in the capital city - located more than 650 miles from the quake's epicentre - fled into the streets when the tremor occurred.

The magnitude-8.1- natural disaster was felt as far as away as Mexico City and Guatemala City, Guatemala's capital.

Four people were reported killed in Chiapas, while two children died in Tabasco state. One of the hardest hit areas was Oaxaca, where more than 40 people lost their lives. Pemex said there were no reports of damage to its Salina Cruz refinery in Oaxaca, the largest in Mexico.

Mexico's army, marines and federal police have been deployed to respond to the crisis, but relief efforts will be complicated by Hurricane Katia and heavy rains could also contribute to water-borne illnesses, warned one aid agency.
