At the beginning of the week, a strong earthquake was registered that was the third recorded on September 19.

Impressive images of a transformer that exploded in Mexico City began to circulate on social media, as well as the way in which a building wobbles as if it were jelly. The images sparked fear among nearby residents in the Doctores neighborhood, so people immediately left their houses. To see the video click here. Filed Under: Michoacán earthquake images
