Help Victims of Deadly Mexico Earthquakes
Huge magnitude 7.1 earthquake collapses Mexico City buildings
Another 8.1 magnitude earthquake strikes Oaxaca
At least 350 killed, 10,000 damaged buildings
At 1:14p on September 19, residents of Mexico City scrambled into the streets as buildings swayed and collapsed after a magnitude 7.1 earthquake rattled the area. At least 350 have been killed by the incident, and thousands of buildings have been damaged or destroyed.
The incident comes two weeks after Mexico's most powerful earthquake in a century, an 8.1-magnitude quake that rocked the southern state of Oaxaca, killing at least 90. The massive quake toppled buildings, damaged historic churches, and caused mudslides around the region. Community centers, infrastructure, and buildings need to be repaired and rebuilt.
