Large Earthquake Strikes off of Mexico, Generates Small Tsunami

One of the largest Central American earthquakes ever occurred last night off the coast of Mexico and Guatemala. The USGS estimates it was a magnitude 8.1 that ruptured about 70 kilometers off the shore, with the city of Pijijiapan closest to the epicenter. At least 32 people have died  (the death toll now looks to be at least 58) in the earthquake so far according to early reports.
