RIP to those who have lost their lives in the earthquake that hit Mexico today.
How terrible to live that experience. God bless us all. That’s how the quake was found on CD. From Mexico a few moments ago.
According to Business Insider: A major earthquake rattled Mexico on Tuesday, and the damage appears to be severe.
The US Geological Survey said the earthquake was magnitude 7.1 and originated about 75 to 100 miles southeast of Mexico City. Dramatic shaking was reportedly felt throughout the metropolitan area, which is home to about 20 million people.
People on Twitter, Facebook, and other social-media platforms are posting photos and videos that they say show the disaster and its aftermath in and around Mexico City — fractured roadways, swaying and collapsing buildings, explosions, and more.
At least 116 people died in the magnitude-7.1 earthquake, officials said. Most deaths were reported in Puebla, Morelos and Mexico states, and Mexico City, the capital.
The government said 3.8 million customers in central Mexico had their electricity service interrupted.
President Enrique Peña Nieto said 27 buildings collapsed in the capital, which is about 75 miles from the epicenter, CNN affiliate Foro TV reported.
The quake hit hours after many people took part in drills and commemorative events on the anniversary of a devastating earthquake that killed thousands in Mexico City, more than three decades ago. Residents realized Tuesday’s earthquake wasn’t a drill when rooms trembled.
