Mexico remembers earthquake victims with nationwide drill

Mexico (Notimex) - Cities across the country held a mock earthquake drill in memory of the victims of the earthquakes of September 19, 2017 and 1985. 

The drill was organized by Civil Protection units in each state. 

Participants included the general public, police, military, fire brigade and medical personnel. 

Authorities called for the public to hold one minute of silence prior to the drill, which was held at 1:16PM, the time when the magnitude 7.1 earthquake hit the country last year.
