MEXICO-EARTHQUAKE

A man walks past a cracked wall during the evacuation of the Alarcon hospital in Acapulco following a 5.62-magnitude aftershock which was reported minutes after a 6.0 magnitude earthquake shook Mexico City on August 21, 2013. A strong 6.0 magnitude earthquake and an aftershock rattled Mexico on Wednesday, causing evacuations of buildings in the capital and hotels in the Pacific resort of Acapulco. The quake's epicenter has been located 17 km west of the town of San Marcos in the southern state of Guerrero, the National Seismology Center said. A 5.62-magnitude aftershock was reported 20 minutes later 14 km northeast of Acapulco, where rocks from a hill rolled into a street and some hotel facades showed cracks while tourists poured into the streets.
