- September 30, 1999: At least 22 people are killed in a 7.5-magnitude quake that strikes southern and central areas. The drill falls on the anniversary of an 8.0-magnitude natural disaster that hit Mexico City in 1985, killing almost 10,000 people.

At least 25 people, most of whom were children, died inside a private school that collapsed in the quake.

Rescue workers are continuing to scrabble through rubble, searching for survivors, including dozens of children feared buried beneath a Mexico City school. Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto personally visited the site, saying 20 children and two adults were killed.

"The priority at this moment is to keep rescuing people who are still trapped and to give medical attention to the injured people."
He writes Wednesday that beyond the lives lost, buildings, roads and bridges were damaged and "most activities were interrupted in Mexico City". This is about 100 miles away, which means approximately 160 kilometers from Mexico city.
