Local Editor

Death toll is expected to rise after a 7.1 magnitude earthquake strikes 120km from Mexico City, collapsing buildings and killing more than 224 people.

Meanwhile, Reuters reported that Mexico's interior minister has said that at least 224 people have been killed by the quake.

During the quake, the Enrique Rebsamen School collapsed, killing at least 20 children.

Mexico's president issued a video statement urging people to stay calm in the aftermath of the earthquake.

AP reported that President Enrique Peña Nieto said in the message issued late on Tuesday night that many people will need help, but the initial focus has to be on finding people trapped in wrecked buildings.

"The priority at this moment is to keep rescuing people who are still trapped and to give medical attention to the injured people," he said.

Peña Nieto said that as of late Tuesday 40% of Mexico City and 60% of Morelos state have no electricity.

The destruction wrought by the earthquake has been massive, as has the response by residents and authorities to respond and rescue those still trapped.
