Likewise, on this day, the country remembers the anniversaries of the earthquakes that occurred in 1985 and 2017 with magnitudes 8.1 and 7.1, respectively.

According to statistics, more than nine million people and at least 119,000 companies from across the country participated in the simulation of a magnitude 8 earthquake in the state of Acapulco, in the south of that country.

Likewise, two possible scenarios were located on the Zócalo plateau in the Mexican capital, one related to the collapse of a house, and another with a gas leak.

According to the capital authorities, the technical means that are used when buildings collapse occur, even when earthquakes have not occurred, were used.

In this sense, the head of Government of Mexico City (capital), Martí Batres, described the second national drill as successful on his account on the social network X.

“We recognize and appreciate the participation of 8.6 million people and the registration of 23,980 properties for the drill. “This is how we strengthen our prevention and reaction capabilities against high-magnitude earthquakes,” said the government official.

The development of this drill is the product of five years of coordinated work between the federal and local authorities of the Aztec country, with the purpose of preparing citizens and showing the levels of response that can be offered in the face of a crisis situation caused by a powerful earthquake.
