7.4 earthquake shakes Mexico on the double anniversary of 1985 and 2017 earthquakes


An earthquake of magnitude 7.4 on the Richter scale, with epicenter 63 kilometers south of Coalcoman, Michoacán, has shaken Mexico on the same day that marks the double anniversary of the earthquakes that struck the country on September 19, 1985 and 2017.

Mexico City’s head of government, Claudia Sheinbaum, has reported that so far there is no damage from the earthquake, which initially had a preliminary magnitude of 6.8 on the Richter scale, as reported by the newspaper ‘Milenio’.

Precisely this Monday marks the double anniversary of the 1985 and 2017 earthquakes, which claimed the lives of around 6,000 and 369 people respectively, with a massive evacuation exercise.

The magnitude 8.1 earthquake killed at least 6,000 people in Mexico City, while the magnitude 7.1 quake 32 years later claimed the lives of 369 people in the capital and other parts of southern and central Mexico.

The 2017 earthquake, which had its epicenter 120 kilometers south of Mexico City, took place just two hours after an evacuation drill marking the anniversary of the 1985 earthquake. Nearly 40 buildings collapsed and more than 5,000 buildings were damaged in the capital.
