Global Reinsurers Face Exposures to Mexico City Earthquake: Morgan Stanley

Global Reinsurers Face Exposures to Mexico City Earthquake: Morgan Stanley

The state had the second-largest natural disaster ever recorded in 1964 and has 11% of the world's recorded earthquakes.

After Tuesday's quake, he and other Topos persuaded motorcycle police to rush them to the ruins of the Enrique Rebsamen school in the south of Mexico City where at least 25 people died, many of them children, when the building collapsed.

Rescue workers in Mexico have been working relentlessly in the aftermath of Wednesday's devastating tremblor that struck on the anniversary of a far-larger 1985 quake that killed thousands of people in the South American country. They worked tirelessly to save people living in the working class neighbourhood of Tlatelolco where there were few government rescue workers.

Describing how he rescued a woman called Joanna at 5 am on Wednesday from beneath a collapsed building, Guevara said the "intense emotion" of finding someone alive was all the motivation he needed to do the unsafe work.

Despite the emergency situation in Mexico City, and several adjacent parts of the country, the authorities of the venue managed to conduct an exhaustive review of the facilities.

He is donating the $100,000 compensation that comes with the position to a scholarship fund at the school. Howard University officials announced in August that Comey would serve as the school's Gwendolyn S.

In the past few days, they have once again crawled deep under the rubble to pull people to safety, this time on their home turf. Carrillo said he was struggling to contact his family for hours.

"I feel proud because my government is giving me respect", Hector Mendez, who set up a topos branch after the 1985 quake, told Reuters.

"In 1985 the damage was worse because there were many buildings that were old".

As Mexico City's Topos "Mole" rescuers used sniffer dogs and tunnelled through rubble in a desperate search for people buried alive under tonnes of debris from Tuesday's quake, one of their founders said the scale of the damage shows how the city is still unprepared to deal with major tremors.

But while newer apartment blocks and helipad-crowned skyscrapers have been constructed to withstand earthquakes, many older buildings remain at risk, said experts.
