Two Deadly Mexican Earthquakes, Two Starkly Different Responses

On September 19, 1985, at 7:17am, Mexico City was hit by a deadly 8.1 magnitude earthquake that left thousands dead.   On September 19, 2017 at 1:15pm, just over two hours after conducting a national earthquake drill in commemoration of the 1985 quake, another deadly earthquake struck Mexico City.  The 8.1 magnitude quake, whose epicenter was located about two hours south of the city, demolished dozens of buildings and killed over 200+ Mexicans.
