Malia Obama is safe in Mexico after an earthquake rocked the country while she was on a school trip!
The strong March 20 quake caused aftershocks which shook buildings in the southern region of the country. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake could be felt strongly in Oaxaca, where Malia was staying for her service trip. Luckily, Secret Service members with her guaranteed she was safe.
“[She] is safe and was never in danger,” the first lady’s communications director Kristina Schake told reporters.
We’re so glad she’s safe!
