Mexico City Slammed by 7.1 Magnitude Earthquake

Just coincidence or it was (((((((them)))))))) testing their earthquake machines?

Reminder that Idaho is getting swarmed :sunglasses::sunglasses::sunglasses:

MEXICO CITY — On the anniversary of its deadly 1985 earthquake, Mexico City again shook with terrifying force on Tuesday, as a 7.1-magnitude temblor damaged buildings, knocked out power and caused alarm throughout the capital.

Just a couple of hours after a siren signaled an annual earthquake drill, the ground began to shake, walls buckled and residents fled into the streets. There were reports of fires and gas leaks and people possibly trapped in rubble in the Mexican capital.

Local radio in the city of Cuernavaca, about 35 miles south of Mexico City, also reported that people were pinned beneath collapsed buildings there, according to Reuters.

The scope of the damage or possible casualties was not immediately clear. The U.S. Geological Survey said the epicenter of the quake was 76 miles southeast of the capital, near the town of Raboso in the state of Puebla. It struck at 1:14 p.m. local time, the agency said. At least two people were killed in the state of Mexico, which surrounds the capital, according to local media reports quoting its governor, Alfredo del Mazo.

I can’t really tell the difference between before the earthquake and after it. Probably less deaths than any other ordinary day in Mexico City though…inb4 massive natural disaster where the US takes in upwards of 20+ million.

Was this all part of Mexico’s plan? Reconquista via white altruism?


#4

Nah it was USA’s plan to kill all the “people”, so the Mexicans here won’t have relatives to send money to. Ban remittances.

Comfy livestream is best livestream.

42 human beings are dead (so far) while you guys take liberty to make jokes about this.


#7

You are right and it is really sad that so many people have died so far in such a tragic way. It’s still very early and the death toll is likely to rise. :pray: I sincerely hope that those who are alive and currently trapped will be safely rescued. :pray: Maybe some of their fellow citizens currently living in the United States will rush back across the border to help them, after all they are our best and brightest and represent all that is good with the USA! :us:

So sick and twisted.

The best way for us to help our neighbor is by offering aid, sending teams to rebuild, and taking in those who have been displaced.


#9

Ok, so start sending your paychecks to Mexico and let every displaced person come live in your house. You better feed them and give them your clothes too.

Take a deep breath. I can tell that you are hyperventilating. Stay calm and just breathe. Breathe.

You are somewhat new here. Your response was completely unoriginal and unrealistic. We’ve heard this so many times before. What you aren’t grasping is that we are advocating for EXACTLY what you are trying (and failing) to belittle us with, except on a macro scale.

We want to help others, we want to take in those who are seeking a better life, we want to help them get started here. We want to pay for it too. When CEOs make more in a day than the average American makes in a lifetime, there is a problem. They aren’t paying their fair share. America has the potential to end poverty and hunger, globally. America can be the tide that raises all boats, everywhere. We squander the opportunity to create lasting peace and prosperity by concentrating wealth and power into the hands of the greedy few at the expense of the many. You are working against your own interests.

No one needs to struggle, not even you.

At least the president said the right thing here.
