Acapulco, September 9
Mother Nature can be astonishing at times. Blue lights were spotted shooting through the skies on Wednesday when a major earthquake shook the country’s Pacific coast city of Acapulco.
The blue flashes were captured on video by Twitter users. Users used the hashtag “Apocalipsis,” which is Spanish for apocalypse, a biblical term for the end of the world. The 7.0 magnitude quake hit 11 miles northeast of the tourist hotspot in Guerrero’s southern state.
Unfortunately, one person died, houses were damaged, and rockslides surrounded a major highway. The earthquake did not inflict extensive damage; however, it did unsettle citizens.
