On September 19, a 7.1-magnitute earthquake shook Mexico, leveling several buildings and causing damage to life and limb.
In Mexico City, the death toll has reached nearly 200 — more than 300 people lost their lives across the affected region. According to the Los Angeles Times, rescue efforts are slowing.
The earthquake struck less than two weeks after an 8.2-magnitude tremor rocked the country’s southern coast. In some areas, like the town of Juchitán, a hotel and bar became rubble.
Despite the destruction, travelers should know that it’s still safe to travel to Mexico. Even in Mexico City, most tourist destinations are still open to the public.
