CIUDAD DE MeXICO (ACI Prensa) -Si bien los estimados de las autoridades difieren entre si, se estima que cerca de diez mil personas fallecieron en Ciudad de Mexico tras el terremoto de 8.0 grados de 1985.

El sismo se produjo alrededor de las 7:17 a.m. (hora local), con epicentro en el Oceano Pacifico, frente a las costas del estado de Michoacan.

Se estima que el terremoto dejo perdidas en danos de cerca de 4 mil millones de dolares.

Hasta la fecha, aun hay decenas de familias que no fueron reubicadas tras perder sus viviendas.

32 anos despues del sismo de 1985, y a pocos minutos de un simulacro que recordaba la tragedia, un terremoto sacudio la zona central de Mexico, afectando los estados de Puebla y Morelos, asi como a la Ciudad de Mexico.

Este nuevo terremoto, de 7.1 grados, se produjo sobre la 1:14 p.m.

El sismo sorprendio a un grupo de obispos mexicanos reunidos en las oficinas de la Secretaria General de la Conferencia del Episcopado Mexicano.

La reaccion de los prelados fue unirse en oracion y cantar Salve Regina.

La Iglesia se comprometio rapidamente con la atencion tras el desastre natural.
