A strong, 7.4 magnitude earthquake rattled Mexico Tuesday. Local officials report 800 homes are now piles of rubble. The quake hit in the southern part of the country, in the state of Oaxaca.
A large community of people from Oaxaca live in the Central Valley, including the owners of Café Oaxaca and Bakery in Clovis.
Tuesday, there were more than pastries on their minds.
"I was scared for my family yes. My mom says she was nervous about it," said Rosario Garcia.
She and her family used to live in Oaxaca.
Feeling the ground shake is common there.
"I've been through them too, but not that big," said Garcia.
Her mother, Eugenia, tried calling family members there. At first, she says an operator told her lines were busy and she may not get through. But after several minutes, she was connected.
"They said they were fine, everything was okay," said Garcia.
