PPK Tweets that Peru is Ready to Aid Mexico After 7.1 Earthquake (VIDEO)


In the wake of category 5 hurricane Irma, a massive earthquake shook Mexico city leaving people in panic and hundreds dead.

Mexico city was hit with a 7.1 magnitude earthquake on the Richter scale and caused panic throughout the country on Monday and left more than 217 people dead, according the The Guardian.

Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski yesterday afternoon tweeted to Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto his solidarity and wrote that Peru was willing to aid Mexico in any way possible after this horrific natural disaster.

Areas that were affected by the earthquake include Condesa, Del Valle, Narvarte, Centro, Coyoacán y Xochimilco and many more.

To make matters worse it was the 32nd anniversary of a devastating quake that killed thousands in Mexico City in 1985. Not only did the strong quake move buildings, but it also caused many fires, gas leaks, electrical power cuts, and buildings to collapse.

Below you can view footage reported by Reuters about the devastation left by the natural disaster.
