Mexico is counting the cost of a major earthquake that damaged buildings and infrastructure but did not cause any fatalities. Eleven people were injured.

The 7.4 magnitude tremor rocked the capital, Mexico City, for more than one minute sending thousands panicking onto the streets.

The quake hit hardest in the southwestern state of Guerrero, where around 800 houses were damaged, officials said.

The tremor was one of the strongest to hit the country since the devastating 8.1-magnitude earthquake of 1985, which killed thousands in Mexico City.

Mexico’s interior ministry said the country would remain on high alert after 18 aftershocks to the quake were registered.
