    7.6 Quake in Mexico

    http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquak...sc0008m6h.html

    OAXACA, MEXICO
    Distances
    25 km (15 miles) E (95°) from Ometepec, Guerrero, Mexico
    42 km (26 miles) NNW (335°) from Pinotepa Nacional, Oaxaca, Mexico
    87 km (54 miles) SW (219°) from Tlaxiaco, Oaxaca, Mexico
    162 km (101 miles) WSW (255°) from Oaxaca, Oaxaca, Mexico
    186 km (115 miles) E (96°) from Acapulco, Guerrero, Mexico

    Also, apparently President's daughter could be within 90 miles of the epicenter.

    And about 200 miles from El Paso. I wonder how far away the damage went

    El Paso is a long way from Oaxaca.

    You're absolutely right. I looked up Guerrero, Mexico which is much further north. Thanks for the correction!

    I hope everyone is okay down there.

    In a town near me, there are a lot of Mexicans from Oaxaca. I never knew how to pronounce it (or their shops, which they call Oaxaquenas) until i asked someone. Wa-Ha-Ca, or in the stores case, Wa-Ha-Cane-Ya. Not very relevant, I know, but it is an awkward looking word for me and for that reason interesting.

    /Cool story bro

    Earthquakes suck, especially in areas with
    Limited building codes

    My heart goes out to them, it's a major drag to deal with

    Oaxaqueñas translates as "from Oaxaca" (f)(p). In this case its just a shorting of tienda (store) oaxaqueña.

    A lady from oaxaca would also be a oaxaqueña. (señora oaxaqueña)

    wa-ha-KEN-ya is a more appropriate pronunciation, IMO.
