In addition to Mexico City, people were also killed in Puebla, Morelos, Mexico state and Guerrero. Well after nightfall, rescue crews and volunteers in Mexico City – home to 20 million people – were still clawing through the rubble of dozens of collapsed buildings looking for survivors and bodies.

Yellowstone earthquake swarm slowing, but ongoing

Almost 770 earthquakes have been recorded in Yellowstone Park over the past two weeks — more than normal but not a sign of volcanic activity, scientists say. The swarm, which began June 12, is ongoing, though the frequency of earthquakes has slowed down a bit. Typical swarms comprise 10 to 50 quakes. So far, five quakes have measured in the magnitude 3 range and 64 in the magnitude 2 range. The other 699 have been measured at magnitude 1 or less. It seems like the quakes are tectonic in origin, there is no volcanic signature to any of the events.
