On September 8,2017 a massive 8.2 earthquake hit Mexico and Guatemala causing dozens of people their lives.The quake had at least five aftershocks so far, with magnitudes ranging from 4.9 to 5.7. People in Belize and El Salvador even felt this tremendous earthquake.  Mexico’s President Enrique Pena Nieto said this is one of the strongest quakes to hit in about 100 years. The last earthquake in Mexico was on September 19,1985 with a magnitude of 8.0. This earthquake killed 5,000 people, collapsed 412 buildings, injured 3,124 people and caused between three and four billion U.S dollars in damage.

In Oaxaco alone 45 people have been pronounced dead so far, and over 60+ deaths in Mexico alone. People’s homes have collapsed and buildings have collapsed  as well capturing people under the rubble. Many homes have lost power and some don’t even have water anymore , which will take 36-48 hours to cut back on. Many people were scared for their lives and didn’t know if they were going to survive this quake Paulina Gomez-Wulschner stated  “This was a very, very strong earthquake, one of the strongest I’ve felt, and I was here in 1985 when that earthquake collapsed Mexico City,” she told CNN “It was very scary.” ,even those who felt an earthquake this huge were still left in shock . This is only the beginning of it though.

Mexico has just been confirmed to have a tsunami. The earthquake was so big it triggered waves up to 3 feet ,and caused the sea to retreat about 50 meters authorities then had to evacuate some coastal areas. According to CNBC news there was no tsunami threat for American Samoa and Hawaii. Mexico’s army, marines and federal police are on standby and are doing everything they can to prevent any more casualties. All we can do now is pray for Mexico.
