  • Helicopter crash in southwestern Mexico

The minister and governor were on a tour to survey the aftermath of the natural disaster that had rocked the southern and central states of Oaxaca, Chiapas, Puebla and Michoacan and Mexico City.

In September of 2017, a 7.1 magnitude natural disaster killed 228 people in the Mexico City (369 total). Friday's quake in Oaxaca could be felt all the way in Mexico City, 225 miles away.

Pictures on social media showed minor damage to roads and some buildings, but there were no reports of injuries.

The February 16 natural disaster brought back memories of the September 19, 2017, quake that killed about 228 people in Mexico City and over 140 in the neighbouring regions.

Emergency warning systems were activated in Mexico City, some 348 kilometers (216 miles) from the centre of the quake, and many buildings were evacuated.

The tremor in a rural area in southwestern state of Oaxaca was felt strongly in Mexico City where thousands of people fled buildings.

On 19 September, a magnitude 7.1 quake killed 369 people in the country on the day the Mexicans had the 32nd anniversary of the 1985 natural disaster that killed 10,000 people.

The state, along with Mexico City, is still reeling from earthquakes that caused widespread damage in September and killed at least 471 people.

NPR's Carrie Kahn reported from the capital, Mexico City, that she felt Friday's natural disaster "pretty strong". The people were in state of shock and went running into the street.

"It was terribly strong. It was the longest staircase in the world", she told AFP.

So far, the National Seismological Institute has reported 225 aftershocks, causing greater stress and fear among the affected population.

"Obviously people are afraid", Puebla emergency response chief Gustavo Ariza said.

The country sits atop three of the Earth's largest tectonic plates.

That included reports of a wall that collapsed in the upscale Condesa neighborhood, which was hit hard by last year's quakes.
