South of the Border

A strong earthquake hit the southern part of Mexico earlier this evening. Luckily it doesn't look too bad by this news report:
It does look like Mexico City did have some power outages but nothing too severe and nothing like the big one they had in 1985. It is one of the largest cities in the world. Some of the pictures I found online of it are impressive. It's also surprising that due to the elevation the climate is not as hot as people think. Summers seem to average in the low 70's F with lows in the low 50's F. That sounds more like Spring or Fall in much of the USA. I can't find any photos that get the whole skyline but this one has at least part:
