MEXICO CITY — According to The News, Mexico City Mayor Miguel Ángel Mancera stressed that the effects in the capital of the country by the earthquake, which measured 8.2 degrees on the Richter scale and was the largest felt in Mexico in almost a century, were minor and limited only to the collapse of small structures and the disruption of electricity in 114 neighborhoods.
Mancera said that the local government put into practice the standard protocol for seismic events of this magnitude.
He said that some citizens who suffered attacks of anxiety are receiving treatment but that there were no other reports of injury in the capital, except for a person in Calzada del Hueso who dropped a fence on his foot and fractured his ankle.
He said authorities including the Grupo Cóndores flew over the city and used the C5 monitoring cameras to check damage, which was minimal.
“All areas have been reviewed. The International Airport of Mexico City is working, hospitals are operating, we do not have any large towers, large buildings or any housing areas that report major damage,” he said.
He said that patrols have been ordered in the colonies where there is no electricity and that there is support from the Civil Protection patrols.
He reiterated that all city services are working and reviews are being made of Mexico City hydraulic facilities, which would usually experience damage or leakage during an event of this scale, but up until now everything was considered normal.
Mancera recommended citizens to review the water and gas facilities in their homes and, if they require support, to call the fire services.
