Mexico, June 23 (Plenglish) A strong earthquake of magnitude 7.5 on the Richter scale affected the nervous system of Mexicans in several states, but they are already returning to normal, while the formation of a tsunami on the coasts was ruled out .
Meanwhile, the helicopters continue to fly over the affected cities, there are no reports of serious damage or victims and that gives some peace of mind after the great trauma caused by an earthquake that, in addition, was long in time because it felt as if there were two.
At first, one felt a magnitude of 7.1, but after a few seconds it went up to 7.5, which confused people who rushed to the streets leaving empty buildings and offices open.
Some came out with masks on the Covid-19, which is also very strong in Mexico, and others without any protection because the intensity of the earthquake was not enough to wait, since the movement of large buildings could be seen from the windows and that increased nervousness.
The quake was felt just as strongly in Mexico City, Oaxaca, where it was the epicenter in the town of Crucecita, Guerrero, Veracruz, Puebla and Chiapas, and the possible damages are evaluated, especially in the Oaxacan capital, and its inhabitants are alerted of possible aftershocks.
The head of the capital’s government, Claudia Sheinbaum, reported that the care protocol is already being carried out and no damage or injured people are reported in the capital.
The national coordinator of Civil Protection, David León, indicated that there are still no reports on the matter in the other states.
In all of them, the security protocol is activated, while from the National Palace President Andrés Manuel López Obrador sent reassuring messages directly to the population through social networks and announced that up to that moment no serious events had been reported.
During these transmissions, she contacted the national coordinator of Civil Protection, David León, to report directly to the population and thus avoid speculation.
Puebla Governor Miguel Barbosa said no damage has been reported so far in this state.
Through a video on social networks, the regional president pointed out that it is ‘just the scare’ and different operations of review and inspection will be applied in the state, especially in the Mixteca area.
In turn, security protocols were activated in Chiapas and the governor, Rutilio Escandón, said that security protocols to verify damage or injuries were activated in the state and the Veracruz government reported the same.
