This Mexican news station was in the middle of a live broadcast on Friday when a powerful earthquake hit. The 7.2 magnitude quake rattled buildings in the capitol Mexico City, sending people running into the streets. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) CALL CENTER EMPLOYEE, DAMIANA DURAN SAYING: "It felt horrible. I waited a while to see if the earthquake would pass, but it didn't. I work in a call center and we have pipes above us and they were moving like crazy. We all thought the building was going to collapse." The relatively shallow quake was centered in the southwestern state of Guerrero, close to the Pacific beach resort of Acapulco. Electricity was cut off in parts of the capitol but there were no early reports of major damage. Still, residents of the capital were shaken. A devastating 8.1-magnitude earthquake in 1985 killed thousands of people in Mexico City. Friday's relatively shallow quake was one of the biggest tremblers to hit the country
