One of the most stomach-churning scenes described by various news agencies was at a primary school on Mexico City's south side, where three floors collapsed into one, trapping students and teachers inside.

A man is rescued from a collapsed building in the Condesa neighborhood after an quake struck Mexico City, Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017. While another 30 children are believed missing, volunteer rescue crews discovered a girl inside the rubble Wednesday morning.

Pea Nieto also expressed condolences to those who had lost a family member or loved one in the quake and reported that 40 percent of Mexico City and 60 percent of Morelos state were still without power.

"We are facing a new national emergency", Peña Nieto told citizens earlier on his first address following the natural disaster. (Spanish) 3117 "Our priority at this moment is to continue with the rescue of those who are under the rubble and to give medical attention to those who are injured". Reportedly 44 places have witnessed the fall of buildings and high-rises across the city were shaken, according to Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera.

Shawn later announced that the safest thing to do would, unfortunately, be to cancel his planned Mexico City concert.

Ken Hudnut, a science adviser with the U.S. Geological Survey in Pasadena, California, said Mexico City's geology probably contributed to the building collapses.

Many others, in areas where multi-storey blocks had concertinaed flat, dug with their bare hands as they waited for specialist machinery to arrive.

It comes less than two weeks after the strongest quake in a century hit Mexico's southern coast and left 90 people dead.

Another powerful natural disaster hit the land of Mexico, this time closer to the populated city.

The country, which had yet to recuperate from the quake that hit earlier this month, will need our aid as it recovers. "We're going to go to a building that fell to see if we can help". "We are with you and will be there for you", Trump said.

As the quake raged on throughout the night, it took out the electricity in 40% of Mexico City and in 60% of Morelos.

Several buildings collapsed with people trapped under them as first responders began rescue operations.
