The authorities of the capital of Mexico can demolish up to 1 thousand buildings that were damaged by earthquakes. “The number of buildings that we have preserved is between 800 and 1,000,” Mexico City Mayor Miguel Angel Manzera said on October 5. At the moment, 94 percent of the buildings have been tested. Of these, the total number of damaged buildings is 8,4 thousand buildings, but this is not yet the final figures.
According to the latest data, as a result of the September 7 earthquake, about 70 people were killed, 369 people were victims of the September 19 disaster. The restoration of the devastation after two earthquakes will cost the Mexican authorities more than two billion dollars. This was previously stated by the head of state Enrique Peña Nieto.
