Mexico hit by two more earthquakes, devastation taking its toll

Mexico earthquake: Strong 6.2-magnitude earthquake hits Mexico City, monitor says

Mexican officials are promising to keep up the search for survivors as rescue operations stretch into a fourth day following Tuesday's major quake that devastated Mexico City and nearby states.

Morelos state accounted for 73, Puebla for 45, Mexico State for 13, Guerrero for six and Oaxaca for one.

The quake was Mexico's deadliest in 32 years.

In her career, Frida has located 12 people alive beneath the rubble.

At the site of an office building that collapsed in Mexico City Tuesday, rescuers briefly evacuated before returning to continue their work.

The Popocatepetl volcano, which is visible on a clear day to the 20 million people who live in the Mexico City metropolitan region, spewed vapour and a ash after two small eruptions on Saturday.

"We're going to wait here, we're not moving, and we hope that you are alive, we believe that you are alive and we're expecting you with open arms." said Armando Albarrán, whose niece is still believed to be trapped under the collapsed structure.

Mexico's disaster agency said the latest quake was an aftershock of the 8.1 quake that hit Mexico's southern coast on September 7, killing almost 100 people.

She said she tried to send WhatsApp and text messages to other people from under the building, as well as make phone calls and post on, but only the messages to her husband got through.

She says the shaking was "terrible, terrible" and hasn't been back to work since the quake.

On Monday morning, Target Corp . announced it wasn't going to wait for the politicians to figure it out. The wage adjustment won't change the retailer's previous earnings guidance for this year.

In the wealthy neighborhoods of Roma and Condesa in the center of Mexico City, volunteers by the hundreds stand ready to help dig for survivors who may be trapped beneath the rubble.

"I never understood why the people who suffered the '85 quake were so afraid of the slightest tremors".

Six days after a devastating 7.1 natural disaster rocked Mexico City, family members of those still trapped under the rubble continue to hold out hope.

"It's that you get to a point when you're so tense, when they don't come out to give us information", she said.

Many have been traumatised by the second major quake to strike Mexico City in their lifetime after a devastating 1985 tremor killed an estimated 10,000 people. But families were hoping against hope to see "miracle" rescues.

It is the moments between those bits of information that torment the families.

A roller coaster of emotions played out on Friday for Roberta Villegas Miguel, who was awaiting word of her 37-year-old son, Paulino Estrada Villegas, an accountant who worked on the fourth floor and is married with two young daughters.

"The NBA", Spoelstra said, "will not put is in the situation where we'd be in danger, unnecessarily".
