Milenio Novedades, Sept. 20, 2017

For the second time is as many weeks, "Mexico Shakes," as the front page of the Yucatán daily Milenio Novedades reports, following a 7.1-magnitude earthquake on Tuesday that toppled buildings and killed at least 216 people. Many more are missing.

Victims include a group of children in Mexico City's Coapa district, where a school collapsed. Authorities managed to rescue 14 children from the rubble but dozens more are still trapped, according to local news sources.

Tuesday's quake came just 12 days after an 8.1-magnitude event struck off Mexico's Pacific Coast, killing more than 90 people. It is the country's deadliest since 1985, when an 8.0-magnitude earthquake killed some 10,000 people in Mexico City. Both disasters, coincidentally, struck on the same calendar date: Sept. 19.
