Mexico Earthquake

The largest earthquake in almost a century struck Mexico off the Pacific coast of Chiapas on Thursday night, September 7th. This massive earthquake registered 8.2 and set off Tsunami warnings. Southern states like Oaxaca and Chiapas seem to have taken the brunt of it. As damage reports come in, we will add images and videos of what we find on the internet so you can find this all in one place. #MexicoEarthquake #PrayforMexico

  1. Police, firefighters and ordinary Mexicans dug frantically through the rubble of collapsed schools, homes and apartment buildings early on Wednesday, looking for survivors of Mexico's deadliest earthquake in decades as the number of confirmed fatalities climbed to 248.
