Powerful earthquake strikes Mexico again
With in just two weeks gap powerful earthquake struck Mexico on Tuesday afternoon, toppling buildings, killing children in a school that collapsed, rattling the capital and sending people flooding into the streets.
A magnitude earthquake struck Tuesday in Mexico. Its intensity was recorded at 7.1 on the Richter scale. Many buildings collapsed in vibrant coastal areas. People from many places in Mexico City are afraid and flood into streets. So far 149 people have been found dead. Many have been missing. Hundreds of people are believed to be in ruins. Life and property damage can be heavier.
But the figure was expected to climb, especially because rescuers were still frantically digging out people trapped beneath mounds of rubble, including the students buried beneath their school, volunteers at the scene said Tuesday night.
Officials say that the ruins are not completely eliminated, but life expectancy can not be assessed. A five-storey building collapsed in the heart of the city of Mexico City. Many of the assistant crews in the courtyard were rescued. Officials estimate that gas pipelines are damaged due to the earthquake. The school building in Queneravka region collapsed.
A week ago there was a huge earthquake that damaged power lines and phone lines. On September 19, 1985, exactly 32 years earlier, the earthquake occurred on the same day in which 10,000 people were killed. Officials held marchs in the city on Tuesday, alerting people in the city.
America’s President Trump assured Mexico that they would be behind the prodigy. Some people were terrified of the earthquake and some people flooded into roads causing some obstacles to the rescue operations.
