On September 19, Mexico City commemorated the 32nd anniversary of Mexico's deadliest earthquake which struck in 1985 that killed thousands of people. Two hours after their yearly earthquake and evacuation drills, another devastating earthquake hit the same city.

At 2:14 p.m. ET on Tuesday, the US Geological Survey reported a powerful 7.1 magnitude earthquake with an epicenter some 100 miles away from the Mexican capital, near Puebla. According to a report by CNN, the earthquake killed more than 230 people across the region, with at least 100 reported dead in Mexico City.

Rescue operations

Search And Rescue operations are still ongoing to help the people trapped inside buildings and schools, and to recover bodies. The operation is conducted in total silence so rescuers can clearly hear the victims' cries for help. Enrique Peña Nieto, Mexican President, visited Jojutla, a small town in the state of Morelos where hundreds of homes and businesses were destroyed.

He said, "We are all one when it comes to saving a life or helping a victim."

32 buildings collapsed in Mexico City with 52 people rescued alive, said Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera on Wednesday. More than 500 members of the army and navy, together with 200 police officers and volunteers have been working at the site.

Officials, police, firefighters, and ordinary Mexicans dug frantically through the rubble of collapsed commercial buildings, schools, homes, and apartment buildings early Wednesday, looking for survivors of the earthquake.
