(KGTV) - Scores of residents in Mexico City and central Mexico fled their homes and buildings, following a powerful 7.1-magnitude earthquake that hit the region Tuesday.
The quake struck the country, still reeling from an 8.1-magnitude shakeup hit off the southern coast of the country on Sept. 7. Tuesday's earthquake also hit on the 32-year anniversary of an 8.0 quake in 1985 that killed an estimated 9,500 people in and around Mexico City.
