With its hospital system already overwhelmed by the coronavirus, Mexico City has just been struck by a 7.1 magnitude earthquake (according to the Mexican geological officials) just moments ago. There have been reports of buildings shaking.
The epicenter was traced to the southern state of Oaxaca.

First-person reports are pouring in on twitter and other social media, but there haven’t been any reports of substantial damage yet.
Just had a surreal moment: whilst calling my family in Mexico City, the city’s earthquake early warning system went off and my grandma and I were talking while her apartment building was gently shaking and she was standing in her safe spot. Sometimes I miss the tremours lol.
