Mexico Hit by Major Earthquake on Sept. 19, 2017 – PopSugar

Central Mexico was rocked by a 7.1-magnitude earthquake on Sept. 19, causing buildings to sway and topple as many broke for lunch. The epicenter of the quake was located about 60 miles outside of Mexico City, and the tremor is the second one to hit the country so far this month — but thankfully, no casualties have been reported as yet.

The timing of the quake is uncanny; just hours before the quake hit, millions took part in emergency drills, which take place every year on the anniversary of the major 1985 quake that killed nearly 10,000 people. Thirty-two years after the catastrophic event, the people of Mexico are still coping with the losses and lessons of that fateful September day.

Below, we’ve pulled together some of the most jaw-dropping videos that have come in from Mexico City thus far. And we’ll absolutely be keeping the people of Mexico in our hearts as search and rescue efforts get underway.
