(KGTV) - The death toll in Mexico's magnitude 8.1 earthquake Thursday night has risen to at least 64 people.
The quake struck off the Pacific coast of the country just before midnight Thursday, toppling buildings and sending thousands of residents fleeing from their homes.
Three more deaths were reported Saturday from the southern state of Chiapas, where the state government says 15 people have died due to the earthquake - in addition to the 45 reported deaths in Oaxaca and four deaths in Tobasco.
