A strong earthquake shook through southern Mexico today at 12:02 local time. Buildings rolled, plaster fell from ceilings and a bridge collapsed, but there was no major damage reported, according to the Associated Press.  Below, we’ve embedded the Storify page put together by The Washington Post with a roundup of photos, videos and Tweets.
