Today was a bad day in Mexico City. 32 years after the deadly earthquake that hit in 1985, a second struck today on September 19th 2017. Many buildings fell today in La Roma, Condesa and Navarte neighborhoods. This happened just 2 weeks after the giant 8.2 earthquake off the coast of Oaxaca. That epicenter was roughly 500 kilometers away from this area. The earthquake of today was a magnitude of 7.9, but much closer. Only about 100km away near the states of Cuernavaca and Puebla. We were able to record some it in a vlog starting just a few minutes after the quake, and walked around the area seeing if we could help, and observing the damage and aftermath. As a Canadian living in Mexico, I have never experienced anything like this before, and being an eye witness was very scary. Send prayers to the people on this city.
