I saw that....just south of Mexico city too where over 20 million people live. It's crazy to think that there was another big one in Mexico just a couple weeks ago.

I found this fact very interesting though: on this day in 1985, Mexico city had their worst earthquake in recent history.

Wow, 2.0, that's YUGE. Okay, maybe not huge, but enough to be felt. We had one here around Vernon last year. Shook my house with a big THUD. It felt like someone had hit the bottom of the house from underneath with a sludge hammer.
