At least 1 dead in Mexican quake, locals warned to avoid coast

MEXICO CITY, June 23 (Reuters) - At least one person died and another is injured in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca after a strong earthquake struck south-central Mexico on Tuesday morning, said the state's governor Alejandro Murat.

Mexico's civil protection agency warned that it expects sea levels to rise up to 113 centimeters (3.7 feet) above normal levels following the quake and recommended that residents move away from the coastline. (Reporting by Mexico City newsroom; Editing by David Alire Garcia)
