The earth is in revolt.
Global warming? The wrath of God? Or just a horrific chain of calamities?
Either or none could be a likely scenario for what is one bad report after another, regarding catastrophic events over the last few weeks.
As the United States attempts to simultaneously recover from Hurricane Harvey and prepare for Hurricane Irma, Mexico has their own natural disaster to overcome, this morning.
Late Thursday night, the southern part of Mexico was hit with the largest earthquake in nearly a century, leaving, at most recent count, 15 people dead.
The quake, which had a magnitude of 8.1, was registered off Mexico’s southern coast and was felt as far away as Mexico City and Guatemala City, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, which tracks such seismic events.
The USGS issued a red alert for “shaking-related fatalities” and economic losses related to the massive quake, warning that “high casualties and extensive damage are probable and the disaster is likely widespread.”
