Another quake hits Mexico City:

hosted.ap.org...




A powerful earthquake jolted Mexico City on Tuesday, causing buildings to sway sickeningly on the anniversary of a 1985 quake that did major damage to the capital.





Mexico's seismological agency calculated its preliminary magnitude at 6.8 and said its center was east of the city in the state of Puebla

Is it time to get scared yet?

Never seen that many natural disasters so close one from another... But hey, maybe I'm just too young.

Hope everyone is alright in there.

It won't be time to get scared until you see the space ships entering our atmosphere. Then you can push the panic button.

I seriously thought we would have one here today in the US. I have checked the USGS at least five times since last night. Still feels like a bigger one is coming, maybe it is just this time of year.

Fall always feels like earthquake weather.

You're right. You are just too young.

This EQ came on the anniversary of a 1985 quake that greatly damaged Mexico City. A EQ drill was held today just 2 hours before this one hit.
Pictures are starting to come in. Building collapses and lots of damage.

There was a small one here in southern illinois.

I didn't feel it this morning but it's been reported.

Here's a screenshot of what it looked like on TA's live stream:



And here it is in comparison to the M8.1 that happened recently down there:



The recent one is marked "unnamed road" with the red icon and the M8.1 is circled in yellow.

Current stream here:

I wonder how much damage was at a city close to where it happened, this was seventy some miles away supposedly, but I suppose that that is where the sensor is. The fault line can run many miles away. The epicenter should be considered a line, not a spot, maybe it is for all I know.

42 people killed so far in the early assessment. Pretty sad. Do you think that there will be more illegal immigration to America from people trying to get out of Mexico... refugees?

Those building collapses are just incredible to watch. So much damage there. The airport is closed as well. It took a lot of damage and possible building collapses there.
