Aftershocks keep hitting quake-stung Mexico town

Mexican soldiers walk on a collapsed building in Juchitan de Zaragoza state of Oaxaca on Friday

In September 1985, a magnitude 8.0 quake killed an estimated 9,500 people in and around Mexico City.

The tremor was stronger than the devastating 1985 natural disaster that killed thousands in the Mexico city.

Mexico's interior ministry reported 15 deaths in the state of Chiapas, and four in the state of Tabasco on Saturday, according to Reuters.

Still, the hurricane center predicted the storm could bring three to six inches of additional rain to a region with a history of flooding and mudslides.

The city's eerily quiet streets were a maze of rubble, with roofs, cables, insulation and concrete chunks scattered everywhere.

Despite the hurricane's arrival, authorities in the mourning country have been working to re-establish supplies of water and food, as well as providing medical assistance to those who suffered from the quake.

The death toll from the devastating Mexico quake has climbed up to 90, Reuters reported.

Tabasco state Governor Arturo Nunez confirmed the death of two children in his district. "In many cases the walls have cracked or collapsed completely". "My prayers for those who have lost their lives and their families", Francis said at a mass in Colombia.

Yunes said Saturday that there were no other reports of major damage, though he said some rivers had risen to near flood stage.

Thursday morning while most people were sleeping, the 8.1 magnitude quake was registered off of Mexico's Southern Coast just as heavy rains from hurricane Katia lashed the East.

The 8.1-magnitude quake killed at least 65 people.

Officials initially issued a tsunami alert, but later lifted it.

A tsunami warning quickly followed the quake, although waves were forecast to be under four meters in height.
