Major quake shakes southern Mexico, at least six killedThe fatalities were near the quake's center in Oaxaca, a mountainous state known for its coffee, mescal and Spanish colonial architecture. A Reuters witness in the state's Pacific coast resort town of La Crucecita, which Mexican authorities said was the epicenter of the earthquake, saw anxious residents standing outside their homes hours after the tremor as they feared deadly aftershocks. "We lost everything in one moment to nature," said Vicente Romero, an owner of a stationary store whose house suffered structural damage.
