ACAPULCO, Mexico (CNN) - Mexican officials were assessing damage Wednesday, a day after a strong earthquake left homes in ruins and rattled residents hundreds of miles away from the epicenter.
At least 11 people were injured and hundreds of houses were damaged in the 7.4-magnitude quake, which struck mid-day Tuesday in southern Mexico.
Photos from some of the hardest-hit areas showed residents surveying rubble where adobe homes once stood. Broken tiles and pieces of buildings fell onto sidewalks as far away as Mexico City, about 200 miles (320 km) from the quake's epicenter.
The city's mayor said the earthquake was one of the strongest to impact the capital since an 8.0 temblor that struck in 1985, killing about 10,000 people in the sprawling metropolis. But officials said no deaths had been reported after Tuesday's quake, despite the widespread alarm it caused.FULL STORY
