Update on quake, via Mexican media

High points.

The mayor of Cuajinicuilapa reports two dead, possibly related to the quake. One died after a wall fell on him, the second from a possible heart attack

Oh and the National University is looking at a possible volcanic activity. This would be an old volcano, unlike the Paricutín in 1947 that actually rose from the ground they have installed sensors around the site at Pinotepa Nacional in Oaxaca. 

And of course aftershocks continue. Mexico City has reactivated the command post for phase one of the response plan.

2. La Crónica is doing the best job.

As to us media, the headline was...regulations and civil defense save lives.

This regulations or 'thing are verboten in our media.

There was one impressive photo from the bridge at the Eje 1 Norte, everybody and their sister ran it.

3. Oh this is cool...guess what the Mayor of Mexico will implement?

A forewarning alert system for quakes. We know Japan had a 15 second lead last year. I read about the technology yesterday. I guess they have decided to do this as part of the commons. Since most quakes originate at a region that takes sixty to ninety seconds to reach mexico city, this could save lives. Yup, I was fuming that this was a private company.

In LA this could e doable at long distance...
