The lives of many changed drastically last night.

Last night, a magnitude 7.1 earthquake hit central Mexico. This is the deadliest earthquake in Mexico since 1985. Ironically, the quake hit on the 32nd anniversary of the biggest earthquake to ever have hit Mexico City.

The death toll from this quake has reached over 200.

Homes, buildings, schools, offices have been extensively damaged.

Rescuers are still looking for survivors among the wreckage.

This is the second earthquake to hit Mexico this month. About two weeks ago, a magnitude 8.1 earthquake struck killing 90 people.
