A 6.5 magnitude earthquake shook Mexico's western Guerrero state Saturday. The quake resulted in three deaths, reports the Associated Press.

An earthquake of this magnitude is generally very destructive, but the depth of the tremble lessened its impact, reports USA Today.

The U.S. Geological Service said that the quake occurred at a depth of 40.3 miles, reports USA Today.

Roads were blocked by rubble from the quake. High-rise buildings shook for more than a minute, causing shoppers and workers to vacate the buildings, reports the Associated Press.

People fled their homes and gathered in the streets, hugging and crying, reports USA Today.
