The ground began to shake again as parents of children who died when their schools collapsed in the 2017 Mexico earthquake celebrated a memorable mass.

“No, never again! My God, never again!” they cried as a magnitude 7.6 earthquake rattled through the capital on Monday, killing two people in the Pacific Rim state of Colima.

On September 19, three powerful earthquakes hit Mexico in 1985, 2017, and now in 2022. An unfortunate coincidence has left many feeling uneasy. His last two quakes came on the heels of annual earthquake drills held annually on September 19 to commemorate the devastating 1985 earthquake.

Laura Velázquez, Mexico’s national civil defense coordinator, said Tuesday that the two deaths in Colima were due to part of a building collapsing. Ten people were injured.

More than 200 buildings were damaged, including dozens of schools and health centers, she said. About 20 buildings in Mexico City were damaged, but the damage was minor, she said.

On the morning of September 19, 1985, a magnitude 8.0 earthquake devastated the south and west centers of the country, killing about 9,500 people.

Call center coordinator Jorge Ornelas said, “It’s really strange, but a lot of people already hate that day.” I was.

“If you keep thinking that every September 19th the quake will happen, it will keep happening every year because what you think always happens,” said Ornelas, 35.

Xyoli Pérez-Campos, a researcher in the Department of Seismology at the Institute of Geophysics at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, said there is no physical reason for large earthquakes to occur at the same time on the same day. Monday’s quake was the result of the “interaction of the Cocos and North American plates” that also caused the 1985 earthquake.

Five plates—North America, Pacific, Rivera, Caribbean, and Cocos—all run under Mexican territory.

“The plate will break when the time comes to break it,” Perez Campos said. “What are they going to know about the calendar?”
