    (CNN) At least 16 people have died after the most powerful earthquake to hit Mexico in a century struck off the country's southern coast.

    During an interview with CNN affiliate Foro TV, Luis Felipe Puente, the country's national coordinator for emergency management, said 10 peopled died in Oaxaca state, four in Chiapas state and two in Tabasco state.

    The magnitude-8.1 quake, which was felt as far as Mexico City and Guatemala City, was registered off Mexico's southern coast just as heavy rains from Hurricane Katia lashed the east. The epicenter was in the Pacific Ocean, some 600 miles (1,000 kilometers) southeast of the capital and 74 miles (120 kilometers) from the Pacific coast.

    Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto said the quake was the strongest earthquake Mexico has experienced in 100 years.

    Looks like there's something wrong with our bloody planet

    Tsunami also...

    - A tsunami was confirmed in Mexico, with one wave coming in at 3 feet (1 meter), according to a tweet from the National Weather Service's Pacific Tsunami Warning Center. It said tsunami waves taller than 10 feet (3 meters) could hit coast of Mexico, while 3-foot waves could reach as far as Ecuador, New Zealand and Vanuatu.

    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

    8.1 !!!

    Mercy! And I do mean Mercy!

    Hate to say it, but ...

    All that is happening lately is beginning to sound rather "Biblical." Earth quakes, floods, fires (and yes I know this is fire season out west, but still) and now, hellish hurricanes ...

    And as some witty folks are calling Irma, "Irmageddon."
