A powerful natural disaster of magnitude 7.1 struck Central Mexico on Tuesday, toppling dozens of buildings and killing at least 216 people in and around nearby states, and also triggering an eruption of Mexico's Popocatépetl volcano.

The US Geological Survey said the quake hit five miles southeast of Atencingo in the state of Puebla, about 100 miles south of Mexico City, at a depth of 32 miles. However, it has been reported that a Jewish man from Mexico City is missing. Most deaths have been reported in Puebla, Morelos and Mexico states, and Mexico City, the capital.

Donald Trump, President of United States of America, shared a message on Twitter and said, "God bless the people of Mexico City". Evacuation drills had been held in the country on Tuesday's anniversary.

Calling the quake "devastating", Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a tweet that Canada is ready to help "our friends" in Mexico.

A powerful quake jolted central Mexico on Tuesday, killing 216 people, cracking building facades and scattering rubble on streets in the capital. Dozens of buildings collapsed or were severely damaged in densely populated parts of Mexico City and nearby states.

Across Mexico City, teams of rescue workers and volunteers clawed through the rubble with picks, shovels and their bare hands. It added that the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City is also ready to provide assistance to U.S. citizens who were possibly affected by the quake. Until further notice, Mexico City's airport, schools as well as the stock exchange will remain closed.
