As if the swing flu epidemic wasn't enough. A strong 6.0 earthquake struck south of Mexico City this morning. So far, there are no reports of deaths, major injuries or damage. People, who were asked to stay away from common areas and to wear masks, were forced out of their buildings and into the crowded streets.
