mexico earthquake

A worker in a Mexico City office recorded a tense moment as his colleagues lined up against the walls watch the lights sway above them during a 7.2-magnitude earthquake that hit southwest Mexico on Feb. 16. The footage was recorded in the Torre Diana office building. The quake left nearly a million homes and businesses without power in Mexico City and the south and damaged at least 50 homes in Oaxaca. The state, along with Mexico City, is still reeling from earthquakes that caused widespread damage in September and killed at least 471 people.
