Strong Earthquake Strikes Near Acapulco

Strong Earthquake Strikes Near Acapulco


MEXICO CITY (CBS Houston/AP) – A 7.4-magnitude earthquake rattled Acapulco, Mexico, a favorite tourist destination, Tuesday afternoon.

The United States Geological Survey reports that the quake’s epicenter was 11 miles underground and 115 miles from Acapulco, in the Oaxaca regionwhere President Obama’s 13-year-old daughter Malia is reportedly staying for spring break. The White House tells CBS Houston that Malia is safe.

“In light of today’s earthquake, we can confirm that Malia Obama is safe and was never in danger,” Kristina Schake, communications director to Michelle Obama, told CBS Houston. ”We would reiterate our request that the media respect the privacy and security of the Obama children and not report on or photograph the girls when they are not with their parents.”

I am surprised that the Obamas would even PERMIT one of their daugthers to go even down to Mexico, considering the ongoing drug cartels violence, PERIOD.
