Strong quake in Mexico; Oakhill still open

We have Vindy news teams dispatched around Mahoning County today, with a strong watch over actions at Oakhill Renaissance Place.

Why?

There was an earthquake in Mexico.

Here's the report:

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - A strong 6.2-magnitude earthquake struck southern Mexico early on Wednesday, shaking buildings as far away as Mexico City but not causing serious damage or casualties.

  

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake struck near the town of Pinotepa Nacional around 80 miles southwest of the colonial city of Oaxaca, but police patrols checking surrounding towns did not report problems.The USGS reported the quake as strong as magnitude 6.5 but later revised the figure to 6.2, also moving the epicenter slightly. 

"It was pretty strong," said Jorge Cervantes, a security guard at Hotel Las Gaviotas in Pinotepa Nacional. "Some guests went downstairs but the building is fine and nobody is hurt."

There's no word yet what damage was caused at Oakhill. We'll stay on this all day.

I had the same thought when I heard about the quake. The weather was not as nice this week maybe that effect the building.

My stomach was rumbling today just before lunch but I see no mention of it . A quick trip to Arbys ended the dilema .

Don't get insulted, but is your job devoted to spreading ignorance?
