    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, following President Donald J.

    According to the U.S. Geological Center, an earthquake happened just off the coast of South Padre Island on Saturday. The USGS says that the earthquake hit 103 kilometers (about 64 miles) east-northeast of South Padre around 6:15 p.m. local time. It was a 3.0-magnitude earthquake, which is relatively small. Local reports say that first-responders are standing by in case they're needed to cover any damage but so far they say that no damage has been reported. Local officials say that they don't expect anything further to come of the earthquake either.

Mexico's seismological agency calculated its preliminary magnitude at 6.8 and said its center was east of the city in the state of Puebla. Pictures fell from walls and objects were shaken off of flat surfaces. Some people dove for cover under desks. Earlier in the day buildings across the...
