Mexico City Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum said on Twitter that two people had died – a woman who fell down the stairs of her home and a man who had a heart attack. Residents flocked to the streets as seismic alarms blared.

The earthquake shook an already troubled country. Monday’s stronger earthquake was the third major earthquake to occur on September 19 — in 1985, 2017 and now 2022. The September 19, 2017 and 2022 earthquakes occurred shortly after the annual earthquake drill held every September 19 to commemorate the devastating 1985 earthquake that killed an estimated 9,500 people.
