A magnitude 7.1 earthquake struck Mexico Tuesday, causing damage more than 75 miles away from its epicenter in the nation’s capital.
The center of the earthquake was located southeast of Mexico City in the town of Raboso, leading to overturned buildings and possible deaths in Mexico City.
The Associated Press reported Tuesday night that death toll in Mexico was around 140.
The earthquake took place on the 32nd anniversary of a devastating 1985 earthquake in Mexico City that killed thousands of people, hours after some buildings across the city held preparation drills to commemorate.
