Two powerful 4.1 magnitude earthquakes have struck off the southwest coast of Mexico near Paredón, Chiapas, according to according to US Geological Survey.

A magnitude 5.5 hit Las Aguamitas, Sinaloa, just hours before.

Three earthquakes later rattled Oaxaca in southern Mexico, the strongest of which caused residents to flee their homes.

The huge tremors struck in the same region that the most powerful earthquake in a century hit just weeks ago, killing at least 90.

And the country is still reeling from the massive earthquake that virtually flattened Mexico City just days ago.

At least 298 people were killed and entire communities were left in ruin with rescue operations still under way to save dozens feared trapped under rubble.

Mexico is situated in a notorious earthquake “danger zone” known as the Ring of Fire, where up to 80% of the world’s tremors occur, USGS said.
