Massive Mexico Earthquake

A massive, desperate scene all across central Mexico following a major earthquake.


Schools, homes and apartment buildings all reduced to rubble this morning. At least 248 people there are now confirmed dead after a powerful 7.1-magnitude earthquake centered less than 80 miles southeast of Mexico City. More than forty buildings have collapsed in the Mexican capital alone, including residential structures and at least one primary school. Tuesday’s quake comes less than two weeks after another powerful earthquake hit southern Mexico, killing ninety people. Earthquake drills had been held across the nation just hours before, on the the 32nd anniversary of the 1985 monster earthquake that killed thousands.
