Governor Survives Helicopter Crash, 13 Others Unlucky

People stand on the street after an earthquake shook buildings in Mexico City Mexico

A state government official said the chopper crashed into a group of people who had been spending the night outside after a powerful 7.2 magnitude quake hit the area Friday in the early evening.

On Sept. 7 and Sept. 19 past year, two earthquakes of 8.2 and 7.1 magnitude respectively killed 471 people altogether and damaged over 180,000 houses in eight states.

The death toll from a helicopter crash that followed a strong natural disaster in southern Mexico rose to 14 Sunday, as the defense minister said the government assumed full responsibility. Although the interior minister of Mexico and the governor of Oaxaca were both on board, neither of the senior officials perished.

The United States Geological Survey, the go-to when it comes to earthquakes and other geological events, found that the quake occurred roughly 15 miles deep into the Earth's crust, the epicenter being roughly 90 miles from the coast of Oaxaca, one of the 31 states in Mexico. All the victims were on the ground at the time of the accident, and fifteen people were injured.

The temblor had a depth of 15 miles. "It started to shake; the cars were going here and there".

However, unlike the HomePod which left behind prominent white circles, the Sonos One left behind four small marks. According to Apple , the marks are not permanent and can be removed by wiping and cleaning the furniture.

A strong natural disaster shook southern and central Mexico Friday, causing panic less than six months after two devastating quakes that killed hundreds of people. This is the second powerful natural disaster that has struck Mexico in less than six months with two powerful earthquakes in September which left more than 400 people dead.

According to the National Seismological Service in Mexico, Oaxaca is one of the country's most earthquake-prone states, registering approximately 25 percent of all its quakes. Although the town was fortunately small, a whopping 50 homes and buildings were damaged, if not entirely destroyed.

Mexico sits at a spot where five tectonic plates come together, making it particularly vulnerable to earthquakes.

Earlier reports said the chopper crashed on top of two vans in an open field.
