The magnitude7.1 earthquake registered on Tuesday, September 19, in Mexico has left more than 200 dead, in Mexico City, Morelos, Puebla and State of Mexico, in addition to 800 injured and 39 buildings collapsed. Tragically, among the victims were 21 children and four adults who were at the Enrique Rebsámen elementary school at the time of the event.

The country was still recovering from a magnitude 8.2 earthquake that hit the southern coast just two weeks ago. It was the strongest one Mexico has felt in 100 years. Also, Tuesday’s earthquake fell on the 32nd anniversary of the magnitude 8.0 earthquake that struck Mexico City in 1985, killing more than 5,000 people.
