TONALA, Chiapas — Neither injuries nor any major damage have been reported immediately following a 6.6-magnitude earthquake centered in Chiapas and felt as far away as Mexico City, Guatemala and Belize on Thursday Dec. 17.
Broken windows and panic attacks were about the worst of the damage, according to one report, but state Civil Protection said damage to an abandoned building in Tonalá was serious enough that it was demolished for safety concerns.
Other damage, including a small landslide, has surfaced in photos on social media.
The epicenter of the quake, recorded at 1:49pm Dec. 17, was in the south of the municipality of Tonalá in the community of Tres Picos.
The National Civil Protection office said the effects were felt strongly in Chiapas and Tabasco and moderately in Oaxaca and parts of Mexico City.
