Earthquakes demonstrate how much damage in Mexico

Earthquakes demonstrate how much damage in Mexico:- Two big earthquakes were a tragic reminder in Mexico in last month that the country sits atop one of the most seismically active places on Earth. In particular, the magnitude 7.1 Puebla tremor on 19 September demonstrated Mexico’s vulnerability, causing serious damage in Mexico City and taking more than 270 people lives.

However, Mexico’s most lethal earthquake remains the 1985 Michigan earthquake of magnitude 8, which occurred 32 years earlier before, to the day, and as many as 10,000 people were killed. Strangely, many of the buildings that survived in 1985 succumbed to the tremors from the magnitude 7.1 last month. That’s because of two earthquakes produced different kinds of shaking and destruction

Although previous month’s 7.1 was 30 times less powerful than the magnitude 8 in 1985, its epicenter was very close to Mexico City: 130 kilometers away compared with 400. This distance explains the differing damage patterns between the two earthquakes.

It is the low “booming bass” waves that travel across long distances. They cause the ground flat surface to roll like a boat riding in rough seas and tall buildings are especially vulnerable to this motion. In 1985, it was the tallest buildings (between five and 20 storeys) that suffered the worst damage.

Earthquakes such as the event of 7.1 magnitude previous month produce intense “jerky” shaking. This high-frequency movement (which diminishes over distance) is more effective for shorter buildings (less than six storeys). So, in this case, the taller buildings swayed violently but remained standing, while the smaller buildings, many of which had survived the earthquake in 1985, quickly became heaps of rubble.

North Korea: Earthquake near nuclear site sparks fears

North Korea: Earthquake near nuclear site sparks fears:- An earthquake of 2.9 magnitude has been recorded close to North Korea nuclear testing site, fuelling fears the country has tested another hydrogen bomb, Said, US-based monitor,

The US Geological Survey said it had recorded the earthquake around a known North Korean nuclear testing site about 23km north-east of Sungjibaegam.

Although analysts cannot be 100 per cent sure that the earthquake is the result of a nuclear test, it shares many “characteristics” with past tests.

Pyongyang’s last known nuclear test occurred on 3 September but caused an earthquake with a much greater magnitude of 6.3. The action drew widespread condemnation including from the UN.

The North Korean regime has stepped up its nuclear and missile testing over the past year as tensions between it and the US become increasingly fraught.

USA President Donald Trump is accused by the North Korean foreign minister of having “lit the wick of war” between the two countries and warned that America would be made to pay with a “hail of fire”, on Thursday.

It is feared that the regime is close to being able to make a nuclear warhead small enough to fit on the end of a missile.

Its missile tests have already demonstrated it is capable of hitting Japan too, and analysts say it will be able to reach the mainland US within two years.

In August, Mr Trump threatened North Korea with “fire and fury like the world has never seen” if it continued with its nuclear programme, to which it responded by threatening to attack the nearest US territory to the country – the island of Guam.

In September, during an address to the UN General Assembly, Mr. Donald Trump claimed the US would “totally destroy North Korea” in the event of war and warned that while the US has “great patience and strength” its options for dealing Pyongyang could soon run out.

He went further by repeatedly mocking North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, referring to him as “Rocket Man” and saying he was on a “suicide mission”.

The test came as USA White House Chief of Staff General John Kelly said he though the North Korean nuclear threat was “manageable”.

Although Mr. Donald Trump thought diplomatic attempts to deal with North Korea were a “waste of time”, He hopes diplomatic measures will work before the nation develops further weapons, said Gen Kelly.

There’s already “great concern” about Americans who live in Guam, he said. North Korea in August threatened to fire a salvo of intermediate range missiles toward the US Pacific island territory, a major military hub home to US bombers that periodically fly missions over the divided Korean Peninsula.

He said, “Right now we think the threat is manageable,” but added the situation would become more problematic over time if North Korea’s capability “grows beyond where it is today”.

AT THE SAME TIME THE GULF COAST AND THE CARIBBEAN ARE SUFFERING UNDER THE EFFECTS OF MULTIPLE HURRICANES AND VAST PARTS OF THE US

ARE SUFFERING FROM FOREST FIRES, MEXICO HAS HAD A DEVASTATING EARTHQUAKE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN KILLED, BUILDINGS HAVE BEEN TOPPLED, WE WILL SHOW YOU SOME VIDEO SHORTLY, BUT THIS EARTHQUAKE HAS BEEN DEVASTATING — THIS DISASTER PROBABLY NOT TRACEABLE TO CLIMATE CHANGE BUT CERTAINLY HAPPENING AT A PARTICULARLY BAD TIME AS BIG PARTS OF THIS HEMISPHERE ARE DEALING WITH DISASTERS ALREADY YOU SEE SOME OF THE IMMEDIATE AFTERMATH AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT LED TO SOME OF THE DEATHS THAT COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED IS THAT — THOSE ARE GOING TO, OF COURSE — IT MEANS THE BUILDING CODES ARE PROBABLY LESS RIGOROUS AND SUPPORT PERSONNEL AND STAFF WILL BE LESS ABLE TO COPE WITH THE EFFECTS OF A DEADLY EARTHQUAKE I'M GLAD YOU MADE THAT POINT, BECAUSE THOSE COMMUNITIES ARE THE ONES THAT PAY THE GREATEST PRICE IN ALL OF THESE DISASTERS

THIS, TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE, IS A TOTAL COINCIDENCE IT'S JUST REALLY BAD TIMING AS WE EXPLAINED EARLIER IN THE SHOW, THE HURRICANES AND TREMENDOUS FIRES HAPPENING IN THE WESTERN UNITED STATES ARE NOT A COINCIDENCE, CLIMATE CHANGE MAKES STORMS MORE SEVERE, IT CAUSES THE PRECIPITATION TO GO INTO THE AIR, WHICH WHEN IT COMES FROM THE GROUND CAUSES DROUGHTS AND FIRES, WHEN IT COMES FROM THE OCEAN CAUSES PROLONGED RAIN AND FLOODING AND STORMS, SO WE ARE KIND OF LOOKING AT WHAT APPEARS TO BE END TIMES KIND OF SCENARIOS HERE, HIGHWAYS FILLED WITH CARS FLEEING, DEVASTATION WHERE HURRICANES HAVE HIT, THERE ARE THREE HURRICANES RIGHT NOW — AND MORE COMING BEHIND THEM RIGHT BUT THE EARTHQUAKE IS NOT RELATED TO THAT, IT'S JUST BAD TIMING THAT WE HAPPEN TO HAVE AN 8

1 QUAKE, THE WORST IN MEXICO FOR THE LAST 100 YEARS I WANT TO SHOW YOU TWO MORE VIDEOS, PEOPLE RECORDING AS THERE WAS GOING ON, LET'S ROLL THIS FIRST ONE APPARENTLY THE QUAKE WAS PARTICULARLY SHALLOW, WHICH MAKES IT MORE INTENSE AND WE HAVE ONE MORE VIDEO THAT'S A LONG TIME

THE DURATION OF THAT SHAKING HAS SO MUCH TO DO WITH THE DESTRUCTION YOU SEE AFTERWARD AND NOW UNFORTUNATELY BECAUSE OF THE EARTHQUAKE THEY ARE ALSO GOING TO BE HIT BY SOME TSUNAMIS, THAT WILL HAPPEN IN SOME PARTS OF MEXICO, BUT 3 FOOT WAVES COULD REACH AS FAR AS ECUADOR, NEW ZEALAND, AND VANUATU AND 18 MILLION HOMES HAVE LOST ELECTRICITY IN MEXICO AND ONE MORE CONSEQUENCE IS THAT OF COURSE 38 PEOPLE HAVE DIED, BUT BETTER REGULATIONS AND BUILDING CODES HAVE SAVED A LOT OF LIVES, BECAUSE THE LAST TIME A LESS SEVERE EARTHQUAKE HIT IN 1985, THAT WAS AN 8 INSTEAD OF 8

1, IT KILLED AN ESTIMATED 9500 PEOPLE IN MEXICO CITY THERE ARE DIFFERENT REASONS WHY REGULATIONS AREN'T THE ONLY REASON BUT THAT'S A CONTRIBUTING FACTOR WHEN BUILDINGS DON'T COLLAPSE IN THE KIND OF SHAKING YOU SAW THERE, LIVES ARE SAVED, AND THANK GOD THEY WERE IN THIS CASE RIGHT NOW OBVIOUSLY THERE IS SEARCH AND RESCUE GOING ON, I BELIEVE THERE'S A HOTEL THAT WAS DOWN, THEY THINK PEOPLE MIGHT BE INSIDE, THE DEATH TOLL WILL CONTINUE TO RISE, BUT ALREADY DEVASTATING AND FINALLY HURRICANE KATIA IS ABOUT TO HIT EASTERN MEXICO

SO AS IF THINGS AREN'T BAD ENOUGH, HURRICANES ARE ALSO COMING

1 EARTHQUAKE AND WE DO HAVE SOME FOOTAGE THAT WE WILL TOSS TO RIGHT NOW AS B ROLL WHILE I GIVE YOU MORE DETAILS ON WHAT'S GOING ON THESE VIDEOS WERE ACTUALLY SHARED TO US BY A VIEWER BY THE NAME OF JORGE, SO I WANT TO THANK HIM FOR SHARING THIS WITH US THAT IS A SCENE FEATURING PEOPLE ON THESE TOURIST BOATS AND YOU CAN ALSO SEE SOME DAMAGE THERE, THE HIGHWAYS ARE DESTROYED THERE ARE BUILDINGS THAT HAVE BEEN DESTROYED DURING THE QUAKE, MORE THAN 20 BUILDINGS AND OTHER STRUCTURES FELL, INCLUDING AT LEAST TWO SCHOOLS, OFFICIAL SAID, CRUSHING CARS AND TRAPPING SOME PEOPLE INSIDE

IT ALSO CAME LESS THAN TWO WEEKS AFTER THE MOST POWERFUL EARTHQUAKE IN MEXICO IN A CENTURY, A MAGNITUDE 81 QUAKE THAT KILLED AT LEAST 90 PEOPLE, DESTROYED THOUSANDS OF HOMES AND WAS FELT BY TENS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE IN MEXICO AND IN GUATEMALA THE INCREDIBLE THING IS THAT THIS EARTHQUAKE HAPPENED ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF A HUGE EARTHQUAKE THAT OCCURRED IN MEXICO CITY IN 1985 IT KILLED AS MANY AS 10,000 PEOPLE IN MEXICO, SO THERE WERE INDIVIDUALS DOING EARTHQUAKE DRILLS AS THIS QUAKE HIT WHICH IS AMAZING AND IT'S ALSO DEVASTATING ALL OF THESE NATURAL DISASTERS ARE STRIKING AT ONCE AND PEOPLE ARE LOSING THEIR HOMES, THEY ARE LOSING THEIR LIVES, AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO SAY ABOUT IT OTHER THAN IT IS SO INCREDIBLY DEPRESSING

THERE ARE A LOT OF FACTORS THAT GO INTO IT BECAUSE WE'RE BOTH FROM THE VALLEY AND WE LIVED TO THE NORTHRIDGE EARTHQUAKE IN 1994 AND THAT WAS A 68 EARTHQUAKE THE THING TO KNOW ABOUT THE RICHTER SCALE IS EXPONENTIAL NOT LINEAR SO THE BIGGER IT IS, OVER A NUMBER, IT ACTUALLY GETS EXPONENTIALLY LARGER SO A 71 QUAKE IS MUCH STRONGER THAN A 68 QUAKE

ANOTHER ASPECT OF IT THAT GOES INTO CONSIDERATION IS THE TIME OF DAY THE NORTHRIDGE EARTHQUAKE WAS A 431 IN THE MORNING AND PEOPLE WERE IN THEIR HOMES AS OPPOSED TO EARTHQUAKES LIKE THIS ONE AND THEN THERE WAS ONE IN SAN FRANCISCO IN THE 80S DURING A WORLD SERIES GAMES ARE PEOPLE ARE OUT AND ABOUT AND EACH SITUATION BRINGS ITS OWN DANGER IS NOT TO MENTION THE LOCATION AND THE KIND OF, WHAT'S UNDERNEATH THE CITY AND WHERE CITY IS BUILT SO WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT MEXICO CITY AND EARTHQUAKES A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE MORE AFRAID, THERE HAD BEEN REPORTS FROM THE PREVIOUS EARTHQUAKE WERE FOLKS, EVEN THOUGH THAT WAS OFF THE COAST TO THE SOUTH, PEOPLE FELT IN MEXICO CITY AND OUT OF FEAR, THEY DID WITH THEY DO IN MEXICO CITY WHICH IS MORE OFTEN, RUN INTO THE STREET BECAUSE UNDERNEATH MEXICO CITY, A LOT OF IT IS BUILT ON THE LAKEBED AS A POSTER HARD BEDROCK WHICH LENDS ITSELF MORE TO STABLE CONSTRUCTION THERE'S A LOT OF FACTORS THAT GO INTO IT YOU SEE THEM ALL PLAY OUT AT ONCE AND IT INCREASES THE DEVASTATION, NOT TO MENTION ALL THE COLLATERAL ISSUES LIKE GAS LEAKS AND MAYBE TRIGGERED, BUYERS, BUILDINGS THAT DEPENDING ON WHEN THEY WERE CREATED AND BUILT ARE ENGINEERED TO WITHSTAND LIKE THIS OR NOT AND THEN YOU'LL SEE DIFFERENT POCKETS THAT JUST RANDOMLY SUFFERED MORE DEVASTATION THAN OTHERS BASED ON THE GEOLOGICAL UNDERPINNINGS OF THAT SITE EXACTLY

UNFORTUNATELY, THE DEATH TOLL IS EXPECTED TO RISE AS THE STORY DEVELOPS THIS EARTHQUAKE DID STRIKE TODAY IN THE AFTERNOON AND SO OBVIOUSLY THESE ARE PRELIMINARY REPORTS WILL HAVE MORE INFORMATION, OR DETAILS AS THE STORY DEVELOPS, BUT IT'S AMAZING LAST NIGHT THERE WAS AN EARTHQUAKE IN LOS ANGELES IT WAS SMALL

NO DAMAGE, NO DUST, NO NOTHING BUT WERE SEEING THESE NATURAL DISASTERS OVER THE PLACE RIGHT NOW AND IT'S CONCERNING OBVIOUSLY THERE CAUSED BY DIFFERENT THINGS ALSO PSYCHOLOGICALLY, IT SEEMS LIKE IT ALL IS HAPPENING AT ONCE AND THE EFFECT THAT THAT HAS ON EVERYBODY ALSO, THE AFTERSHOCKS SO THIS IS NOT THE ONLY QUAKE THAT WILL HAPPEN THIS CAME TWO WEEKS AFTER THE MOST RECENT QUAKE AND THEN WHEN THERE IS ANY KIND OF EARTHQUAKE, THE IMMEDIATELY THING YOU THINK OF IS THIS A FORESHOCK OR THE MAIN EVENT? IF IT'S A 7

1 EARTHQUAKE IMMEDIATELY ALL THE SEISMOLOGISTS SAY THERE MIGHT BE A LARGE ONE JUST AROUND THE CORNER BUT EVEN IF THERE'S NOT, I REMEMBER DURING THE NORTHRIDGE QUAKE, 55 EARTHQUAKES WERE THE NORM FOR THE NEXT WEEK I REMEMBERED THAT WE WERE SITTING OUTSIDE IN THE FRONT YARD WE HAD A FRIENDS RV DOWN THE STREET MAKING HOT CHOCOLATE FOR EVERYBODY HEART GOES OUT TO EVERYONE IN MEXICO IS AFFECTED BY THIS AND WE WILL KEEP YOU GUYS UPDATED ON THE STORY AS IT DEVELOPS

At least 149 killed as powerful 71 earthquake strikes central Mexico A powerful earthquake shook central Mexico on Tuesday, collapsing homes and bridges across hundreds of miles, killing at least 149 people and sending thousands more fleeing into the streets screaming in a country still reeling from a deadly temblor that struck less than two weeks ago

The earthquake caused apartment blocks to sway violently in the center of Mexico City, including in the historic districts of El Centro and Roma, crumbling balconies and causing huge cracks to appear on building facades Panic spread through the citys core; rescue vehicles screamed toward damaged buildings, and neighbors took on heroic roles as rescuers At least 49 people were reported killed and 44 buildings severely damaged in the capital alone Ten other people died in the surrounding state of Mexico, 55 across the state of Morelos, 32 in Puebla state and three in Guerrero state, according to a tweet from Luis Felipe Puente, head of the national Civil Defense agency The earthquake struck on the anniversary of a 1985 quake, which killed thousands of people and devastated large parts of Mexico City — a tragedy that President Enrique Peña Nieto had commemorated earlier in the day

At around 11 am, Julian Dominguez heard alarms sounding in the neighborhood of Iztapalapa, part of a citywide drill to mark the anniversary of the 80 magnitude quake Schools and other buildings evacuated, but he kept working at his computer About two hours later, he started to feel the building move, and alarms sounded again

It started really slowly,” he said, but within seconds it was clear that this was no drill Dominguez raced down a flight of stairs Crowds of people already had gathered outside Women were crying, worried for their children still in school It was strange that it fell on the same day …as another earthquake that caused so much damage, said Dominguez, 27

The federal government declared a state of disaster Mexico City and dispatched 3,428 troops to affected areas there and in nearby states We are facing a new emergency in Mexico City, in the state of Puebla and Morelos, following the 71 magnitude earthquake,” Peña Nieto said, adding that he had asked all hospitals to help care for the injured On Amsterdam Street, a normally tranquil road that rings a major park in the upscale Mexico City neighborhood of Condesa, a large apartment building disintegrated into a pile of concrete and dust

Hundreds of residents helped a team of soldiers, police officers and firefighters search the rubble for survivors Many of the men were shirtless in the late summer heat, and everyone was covered with dust Some rescuers commandeered shopping carts from a nearby supermarket and formed a human chain to haul away rubble Several times, a warning went up about a possible aftershock or gas leak, sending hordes of panicked people running But there were few places that would be safe

Amsterdam, like many streets in Condesa, is narrow and lined with trees and power lines, all of which could turn deadly in an aftershock The neighborhood was filled with thousands of dazed survivors too afraid to return to their homes They stood around with dogs and suitcases, holding their heads and checking social media feeds on their phones Many ducked into their apartments to bring food and water for rescuers Juan Jose Martinez, 52, felt the earthquake at his home several miles away

There was no damage to his neighborhood, so he and three relatives grabbed shovels and construction helmets and set out on foot to the most affected areas “What else would we do?” he said “This is our Mexico Everybody needs help sometimes”
