Death toll rises to six and 500 houses damaged by earthquake in Mexico

Mexico / Mexican authorities raised to six the number of people killed by the 7.5 earthquake that struck central and southern Mexico on Tuesday, where it also left five hundred houses and some 55 historic monuments affected.

The governor of the southern state of Oaxaca, the most affected by the earthquake, confirmed to Mexican television that up to 8:00 pm local time (01:00 GMT), six deaths have been reported, one woman and five men.

He assured that the collapses registered in several highways have already been cleaned and communication has been restored, in addition to minor damages in 500 houses, in four schools.

The National Seismological Service reported that the 7.5 earthquake was felt in the states of Oaxaca, Guerrero, Chiapas, Michoacán, Jalisco, Querétaro, Morelos, Tabasco, Veracruz, Puebla, State of Mexico and in Mexico City, and was perceived by up to 22 million people.

The most recent Seismological report indicated that 653 aftershocks of the 7.5 magnitude earthquake have been presented so far, the largest of which is 4.9.

The Ministry of Culture of Mexico and the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) reported damage to 55 buildings of cultural heritage in the state of Oaxaca, 40 with minor damages, 11 with moderate damage and four more classified as severe.

The buildings with severe damage are the Cathedral of the Sierra, in the municipality of San Juan Ozolotepec; the Temple of San Francisco, in San Francisco Ozolotepec; the Temple of Santa María Asunción, in Santa María Ozolotepec and the Temple of San Mateo, in the municipality of San Jerónimo Tlacochahuaya, stated Culture.

INAH reported minor damage to the Tecoaque site museum (Tlaxcala), the Evangelization Museum (Puebla), La Mesa site museum and Archaeological Zone in Tehuacán (Puebla), and to contemporary buildings in the Tula archaeological zone (Hidalgo) .

Mexico is in a zone of high seismicity due to the interaction of five tectonic plates: the North American plate, the Cocos plate, the Pacific plate, the Rivera plate and the Caribbean plate. (June 24, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
