“It scares me every time it trembles”: capital residents suffer from earthquakes

“I had never felt a tremor this strong, that everything moved so much … later, I became very afraid of the tremors and it scares me every time it trembles,” he says. Salvador S., a 13-year-old teenager who grew up in the Tlatelolco housing unit, remembering the earthquake of the September 19, 2017, the strongest he has felt in his short life.

He and his two younger brothers clearly remember the scenes they saw that day from the courtyard of their elementary school, the Fray Melchor de Talamantes, built between the tall buildings of the housing unit.
