MEXICO CITY (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.
