Shortly after 1 p.m. local time, an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.1 struck about 8Km/5 miles southeast of the city of Atencingo in the central state of Puebla. Mexico City has been significantly affected as well as Puebla, State of Mexico, Morelos, and Guerrero. More than forty buildings collapsed in the capital and thousands other buildings suffered structural damages. At least 273 people were killed and over 1900 were injured. Though public transportation, including the capital International airport, have resumed operations, some of the effected states are experiencing communications disruptions. The quake occurred on the anniversary of a 1985 earthquake, which killed up to 10,000 people. Visitors should expect disruptions to essential services due to the significant damage to infrastructure.
