Mexico Declares State of Disaster, 3 Days of Mourning as EQ Toll Rises

Posted by feww on September 21, 2017

M7.1 Earthquake Leaves Hundreds Dead across Five Mexican States

Mexico has declared a state of disaster, and three days of mourning, as the earthquake death toll continues to rise.

A 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck near Atencingo in Puebla state, about 120km SSE of Mexico City on September 19, at 18:14 (UTC).

The earthquake destroyed scores of buildings and damaged thousands more across a wide area, inducing about 2,300 schools alone, according to reports.

The official  death toll now stands at 230 across five states, with at least 100 fatalities in the capital, but it’s expected to rise, as search for survivors continues.

Up to several thousand people may have been injured, but the exact number is  currently unknown.
