Mexico City Doomed By Its Geology To More Earthquakes
In Mexico City and surrounding areas, rescuers are still searching for casualties and survivors of Tuesday's earthquake. More than 200 people are believed to have died.
Geologically speaking, Mexico City is not built in a very good place.
This is the second big quake in Mexico in less than two weeks. It came 32 years to the day after another deadly quake. And there will be more in the future, though when is anyone's guess.
