There is no big damage reported, i think the biggest problem was a bridge in a street that colapsed over a bus, just 1 person (reported at the moment) with injuries.

after a quick check on google maps the quake doesn't affect where baal lives. 7.9 is massive though, hope the casualties are as minimal as they can be

edit: it was 7.6 not 7.9, change title

always thought it would be the drug cartels or a political assassination

this was all so unexpected

there are many different reports of every quake's magnitute and details so some say it's a 7.6 and a 7.9. Others say 7.9 and then correct it later so the magnitude is not set. http://quakes.globalincidentmap.com/ - it says the biggest one was 7.9...

USA Today and ABC news are saying it was 7.4. Still pretty damn big.

Why wasn't there gigantic damage done?


Are adobe huts earthquake resistant or something?


I mean 7.4 is pretty big, I'd expect a decent of damage even in a modern city

11 people hurted.

We survive because we are awesome And there is a lot of earthquake drills after the one that happened on 1985. The population is aware of the danger of this, and follow the instructions without hesitation. One of the few things that we do right.

This was the most shocking event during the earthquake:

A part of a footbridge in Mexico City fell on a passenger bus.



No one resulted dead, the only person inside was the driver, and he got only bruises and scratches.

we live in a highly seismic zone, so all buildings are built with that in mind, in 85 there was a 8.0 one that killed over 10k ppl so we are ready now

yeah there are talkings about the 188 day cycle. Many big earthquakes have been happening at/around the 188-day cycle. I think it was 21st or 22nd of March that is 188 days before the previous big quake and you can see the last like 4 times there were 7+ quakes. The Christchurch, Chile, Japan... Go figure...

Actually the earthquake was a message from god that he don't want the pope in Mexico.

earth getting mad. Big earthquakes are the sickest thing ever when you're outside and can see ground coming at you in waves.

I once played poker at home (8th floor building) and suddenly the whole block started moving and I had to sit out and go under a door frame. I later found out it was something like 4.5 Richter.
I can only imagine what 7.5 feels like on a high floor. Proly would feel like being on a macaroni building. On another note, if the earthquake cycle is true than it would prolly mean we are aligning with some massive object out there every ~188 days or maybe the Earth itself has something internal going on. It's interesting that every year we get more and more earthquake and it's exceeding 30 000 each year which compared to like 50 or so years ago is almost double. 2011 was the most costly year in terms of natural disasters. Shit is getting darker and smellier, you can almost taste it!
