BREAKING: 7.1 Magnitude Earthquake Rocks Mexico City

Tim Pearce | Energy Reporter

An earthquake rocked Mexico Tuesday afternoon, just 12 days after the country suffered the strongest earthquake in a century, the Associated Press reports.

Tuesday’s quake registered as a magnitude 7.1 and struck about 70 miles southeast of Mexico’s capital, according to an independent earthquake monitoring organization.

No injuries have yet been reported. The earthquake caused entire office buildings to empty into the street, according to the AP.

Video shows a crowded building swaying from the impact. Hanging lights swing wildly and flicker off as alarms can be heard in the background.

Mexico is still recovering after it was hit by a 8.1 magnitude earthquake earlier in the month. The disaster was felt by tens of millions and leveled thousands of buildings, The New York Times reported.

“It was brutal, brutal. It was like a monster, like a train was passing over our roofs,” one resident told Reuters at the time.
