Strong natural disaster near Mexico City kills hundreds

Strong natural disaster near Mexico City kills hundreds

The epicenter was near Raboso, a town in the state of Puebla, but could be felt 76 miles away in Mexico City.

"At the moment.149 are deceased", Luis Felipe Puente, director of the government's civil protection service, said on Twitter late on Tuesday.

In a video message after the quake Tuesday, Mexico's President Enrique Peña Nieto urged citizens to remain united.

By GCR Staff0 CommentsThe grim search for survivors including schoolchildren continued in Mexico today after yesterday's 7.1-magnitude quake toppled hundreds of buildings in centre of the country, including many the capital, Mexico City.

The Voice is celebrating its 35th birthday this year.

Tuesday's quake took place on the anniversary of a devastating natural disaster that killed thousands in Mexico City in 1985.

Over 40 buildings have collapsed in Mexico City alone and official numbers say that over 200 people have died.

The middle-class neighborhood of Del Valle was hit hard, with several buildings toppling over on one street. A little more than a week ago, an 8.1 quake hit off Mexico's southern coast killing at least 90. About 2 million people in the Capital Mexico City were without electricity, and phone lines were also down.

Rescue workers along with some civilians put in a desperate shift trying to clear out the rubble and rescue survivors.

Multiple buildings have collapsed or are severely damaged in densely populated parts of Mexico City and nearby states.

US President Donald Trump, who has courted controversy with his plans for a border wall with Mexico, tweeted: "God bless the people of Mexico City". Below you see a graph published by CNN based on the information of the US Geological Survey, with the intensity of this quake.
