Two strong earthquakes, 12 days apart, have shaken Mexico this month, crumpling buildings, sending panicked people into the streets, and together killing hundreds of people who were unable to escape the destruction. Just before midnight on Sept. 7, a magnitude-8.1 earthquake — the most powerful to hit Mexico in a century. Then on Tuesday, September 19th, as officials continued their cleanup and recovery efforts, an eathquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.1, struck about 100 miles southeast of Mexico City, causing severe and sustained shaking in the capital.
