Reminder that Idaho is getting swarmed
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.
