    A total of 370 people were killed and over 6,000 others injured after Mexico was hit by 7.1 magnitude quake in September of last year. Its epicenter was in the central Pueblo state, but 220 people died in Mexico City, which is built on a former lakebed, a location that magnifies the effect of earthquakes even if they are located hundreds of kilometers away.
