MEXICO CITY, Sept. 21 (Xinhua) -- The death toll from Tuesday's 7.1-magnitude earthquake in central Mexico has climbed to 273, the government said on Thursday.
Half of those deaths occurred in the capital Mexico City, where nearly 40 buildings collapsed, and the remainder in surrounding and nearby states.
According to a release from the national civil protection agency, 137 people were killed in the capital, 73 in Morelos state, 43 in Puebla state, 13 in the State of Mexico, six in Guerrero state and one person in Oaxaca state.
The death toll is likely to rise as rescue operations continue and bodies are retrieved from the rubble of buildings destroyed by the quake, the agency said.
In an interview with local media, Mexico City Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera said authorities have recovered the bodies of 87 women and 50 men, including 25 minors.
""Until all hope is lost, we will continue the rescue efforts in zones damaged by the quake,"" Mancera posted to Twitter.
The local government, he added, has declared the city to be in a state of disaster to facilitate federal funding for the reconstruction effort.
Some 5,000 residents forced from their homes are currently at 47 temporary shelters opened around the city, he said.
The number of buildings that collapsed stands at 38, while the number of buildings that sustained damaged has risen to 2,900, he said.
Rescue efforts are ongoing at 10 of 38 buildings that toppled in the capital, Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto said earlier in the day, during a visit to a town in Puebla that was hard hit.
""We will have to maintain the rescue efforts to find people who are still alive under the rubble,"" Pena Nieto said.
Experts say earthquake victims can survive up to 72 hours, or three days, without water. With the quake occurring at a little past 1 p.m. on Tuesday, that would mean the chances of finding survivors would fall considerably by that time on Friday.
The Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) announced it restored power to nearly 95 percent of regions that suffered a blackout following the strongest quake to hit the capital in three decades.
The Health Ministry said hospitals have treated 2,633 people injured in the quake, most in the capital, where 1,998 people suffered injuries.
" I like to be as involved as possible with my daughter’s junior school, as a member of the board of governors I take my role extremely seriously. We had a meeting recently to discuss the state of the School Playground Equipment which hadn’t been replaced in quite some time and had started to show signs of age. It was pretty clear that new items of Outdoor Play Equipment would be required, but being a small community school we didn’t have a great deal of funds to spend. Limited finances were available for the Outdoor Play Equipment so I suggested we organised a family fundraising day to boost the coffers of the school’s accounts. Any money that was raised could go towards new Outdoor Play Equipment and if we approached the local authority they might contribute a little as well. Plus if we asked local companies to sponsor the event we could raise extra income for the Outdoor Play Equipment this way too.
Was that such a great idea?
The rest of the board seemed to think so, we had a vote and we decided to raise money for new Outdoor Play Equipment. One thing I do know about our school is the parents always dig deep for a good cause and what could be more important than new School Playground Equipment. Plans were put in place and we managed to raise a healthy sum for new Outdoor Play Equipment and the next problem was how to spend this money wisely. Obviously we wanted to utlise the cash as best we could on Outdoor Play Equipment and not waste a single penny. It was decided we should go direct to a company that specialised in Outdoor Play Equipment to seek further advice. The team we chose was called Uniplay and they offered a range of innovative outdoor play solutions for schools and nurseries.
It worked out brilliantly!
Making contact with Uniplay was the best thing we ever did. You could see they were passionate about Outdoor Play Equipment and their School Play Equipment was designed specifically to support the development needs of children. With their help and advice we carefully selected a range of Outdoor Play Equipment that will provide future generations with many years of pleasure. Our school now benefits from brilliant Outdoor Play Equipment that helps to keep our kids fit and encourages interaction at the same time. It’s a joy to see the children utilising the Outdoor Play Equipment and I’m so glad we managed to raise the necessary funds to create such a fun-filled environment. "
