Mexico Earthquake Death Toll Rises To 318

Mexican town shakes off shock after quake begins to move forward

Family members embrace as they wait for news of their relatives outside a quake-collapsed seven-story building in Mexico City's Roma Norte neighborhood, Friday, Sept. 22, 2017.

The death toll in Mexico City has reached 181 people, out of 319 dead nationwide.

As one of the of the country's most trusted institutions, the Mexican Navy has a wider role than most armadas, including a canine unit that has two other dogs, a pair of 18-month-old Belgian shepherds, Echo and Evil. But no one has been found alive since Wednesday, when a woman was pulled from debris.

Albarrán and the families of the missing aren't there yet, either. "There is a lot of distrust of authorities", he said.

It was among thousands of aftershocks recorded in the wake of that earlier quake, which was the most powerful to hit Mexico in 32 years and killed at least 96 people.

"I was frightened because I thought, not again", Mrs Castellanos said. "It's that you get to a point when you're so tense, when they don't come out to give us information", she said. Moreno's mother had a look of anguish and largely stopped being able to speak.

The Sunday afternoon evacuation was carried out because the pile of rubble shifted.

"There is a lot of nervousness, a lot of desperation", he finally said.

A series of smaller earthquakes in the south of Mexico on Saturday - including a 6.1-magnitude tremor that triggered seismic alerts - stoked panic in a population traumatized by Tuesday's disaster.

It also swayed buildings in Mexico City, which is trying to recover from a magnitude 7.1 temblor that struck on Thursday, killing at least 295 people.

Mexico City mayor Miguel Angel Mancera told Milenio TV there were "no new developments" due to the quake, though he acknowledged that it provoked "some crises of nerves" among residents. But that means about 1,000 left standing have been determined to be uninhabitable - and the number seemed likely to rise as more are inspected.

Foreign teams from the USA and elsewhere worked with dogs and hi-tech gear to try to detect signs of life under the rubble.

Around 40 percent of the adobe homes he saw in poor villages had been completely destroyed and some 80 percent were heavily damaged, Luna said.

Search operations, using advanced audio equipment to detect signs of life beneath tonnes of rubble, continued at a few buildings with help from teams from as far afield as Israel and Japan.

As quake rescue operations stretched into Day 5, Mexico City residents throughout the city held out hope that dozens still missing might be found alive.

Isaac Garcia, spokesman for the neighbours, said the injunction was a precautionary measure to make sure the search continues at the site wrecked by Tuesday's natural disaster.

"We remain very motivated, very united", he said.

Lidia Albarran, whose niece was buried in the collapse of an office building a block away, heard the alarm and anxious that the latest quake could endanger those under the pile of rubble.

"All of us are doing the most we can", Yebra said.
