The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said that a tsunami is unlikely in the aftermath of a 7.4-magnitude earthquake that rocked Guatemala on Wednesday, causing tremors as far away as Mexico City. Guatemalan authorities said they had received preliminary reports of one death, while a local radio station in the town of San Marcos reported that eight people were in the hospital after a local school collapsed. While no significant damage was reported in the Mexican capital, its mayor, Marcelo Ebard, said on Twitter that there were evacuations in different parts of the city.
