The M7.6 earthquake that just struck Mexico couldn't have worse timing. Today, September 19th, is the anniversary of two devastating earthuqakes, that occured on the same day in 2017 and 1985.

The entire country organised an earthquake drill to remind everyone the procedure and safety protocols to adopt in case of an earthquake; they simulated a M8.1 earthquake off the coast of Michoacan. Roughly an hour after the nationwide drill, the real earthquake occured, not so far from the exercise's epicenter.

I sincerly hope that everyone made it to safety, especially considering that a tsunami warning has been issued for the western coast of the country.

The JMA issued a Distant Earthquake Warning, although no tsunami warning was issued for the Japanese islands
