September 19 of panic! After 1985, 2017, Mexico was shaken by an earthquake again on the same day

Newshub18:September 19 of panic! After 1985, 2017, Mexico was shaken by an earthquake again on the same day.

A powerful earthquake shook western Mexico on Monday. Strong tremors were felt in homes in Mexico City, the capital of Mexico. In 1985 and 2017, this Latin American country was hit by a terrible earthquake. Significantly, earthquakes were felt in Mexico on the same date both those years. Monday’s earthquake triggered that memory, geologists said. According to Mexico’s National Seismological Agency, Monday’s earthquake had a magnitude of 7.4 on the Richter scale. The other day, the United States Geological Survey reported that an earthquake of magnitude 7.6 struck Mexico.

According to Mexican geologists, the epicenter was 59 kilometers from Colcomán in the Pacific coast state of Michoacán and several hundred kilometers west of the capital, Mexico City. As the alarm sounded after the earthquake in Mexico City, people took to the streets in panic. Kareena Surayez, 37, who lives in the capital, rushed out of her house in panic, saying it was a “terrible feeling”. “No damage has been reported so far,” Mexico City Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum said in a tweet. The geologists of the country are not ruling out the possibility of a tsunami after this terrible earthquake was felt in Mexico.
On September 19, 1985, an earthquake of magnitude 8.1 shook Mexico. About 10,000 people died in that earthquake and many houses were destroyed. A few years after this earthquake, on September 19, 2017, Mexico was again shaken by an earthquake. The magnitude of the earthquake was 7.1 on the Richter scale. 370 people died in that earthquake.

It should be noted that recently Taiwan has also been affected by earthquakes for two consecutive days. Saturday’s earthquake in Taiwan had a magnitude of 6.6. Another earthquake was felt off the southeast coast of Taiwan on Sunday. The US Geological Survey reported that the magnitude of the earthquake in Taiwan was 6.9. The source of the earthquake was 50 km from Taitung. Several aftershocks were felt immediately after the earthquake. Houses in the adjacent village of Taitung were damaged by the earthquake.
