Dozens dead after 7.1 magnitude quake strikes Mexico”

The 42 deaths occurred in the state of Morelos south of Mexico City, the state's governor, Graco Ramirez, said in a tweet.

The Los Angeles Times has reported 105 casualties, including 30 deaths in Mexico City alone. It came less than two weeks after the country's southern region suffered another quake that killed at least 90 people.

Rescuers are searching frantically in the rubble of fallen buildings after Mexico's second huge natural disaster in two weeks killed more than 130 people.

More videos taken during the quake capture the impact it had on buildings.

Apartment blocks, a school, a factory and a supermarket were among the buildings that collapsed.

Some animals have also been found alive in the ruins. A highway connecting Mexico City to the city of Cuernavaca appeared to be damages, and Mexico City's airport only resumed operations after safety checks.
