7.1 Earthquake In Mexico Leaves 42 Dead
32 years ago today, on September 19, 1985, a magnitude 8.0 earthquake shook Mexico and left 9,500 people dead. Today, on the somber anniversary of that disaster, Mexico shook again.
According to NPR, Mexico City residents had literally JUST participated in a city-wide earthquake drill 2 hours before the ground rumbled angrily beneath them. The U.S. Geological Survey estimates that the size of this quake as magnitude 7.1 and has left 42 dead in the state of Morelos at current count.
Sh!t was NOT a game. At all.
