The 1985 Mexico City earthquake, a magnitude 8.1
earthquake that struck Mexico on 19 September 1985 in the
morning at 7:19 local time, the death toll was about 10,000
and caused major destruction in the nation's capital. It is
Mexico's largest natural disaster in history.
The earthquake hit in the morning when people were
in their offices. So it was estimated that 85% of the
casualties were from people who had just arrived to
work at their offices.
There were many people missing for days. Many
survivors were trapped under the rubble before
they were rescued.
Many people were homeless for weeks or even
months after the disaster.
