Mexico’s Second Quake in Two Weeks: Hundreds dead

Newsroom24x7 Network

Mexico City: At least 217 people have died after a 7.1-magnitude earthquake struck 75 miles southeast of Mexico City on Tuesday.

The quake comes just two weeks after Mexico registered its strongest earthquake in a century, at a magnitude of 8.1, killing at least ninety and destroying thousands of residences.

The disaster, which fell on the anniversary of a 1985 quake (New York Times) that killed as many as ten thousand, caused dozens of buildings to collapse in the capital of Mexico City and elsewhere. Soldiers and rescuers worked through the night searching for survivors under debris (Wall Street Journal). The U.S. Geological Survey predicted the earthquake may cause up to one thousand deaths (Guardian).

ANALYSIS

“Earthquakes do not kill; but inadequately designed and poorly constructed buildings, infrastructure, and lifeline systems can,” Behzad Fatahi said in an interview with CNN.

“Mexico sits in one of the world’s most seismically active areas, as the floor of the Pacific Ocean south of the country is sliding underneath the North American plate,” Kate Linthicum, Rong-Gong Lin II, Alexandra Zavis, and Ruben Vives write for the Los Angeles Times.

“There could be the chance that the previous earthquake added more stress to a fault that was close to rupture. However, it will take time to determine if this was actually the case,” Erik Klemetti writes for Discover.
