The second major Earthquake in Mexico City in summer 2017 Introduction: Earthquake is one of the most common natural hazards in the world. Earthquakes will have disastrous effects on humans and on the environment. In today’s report, I want to talk about the second earthquake in central Mexico City in summer 2017, which killed more than 200 people, and toppled buildings (Kaimi, 2017). This earthquake in Mexico is considered as a major earthquake because it has magnitude 7.3 earthquake level. This is the second earthquake after the one happened at the beginning of September in Mexico. The cause of earthquake: In general, there are two natural causes of earthquake we learn from this class. One is Tectonic Plate Movement, and another one is Volcanic Eruptions . The Tectonic Plate Movement is the sudden release of energy and the strength of two resting plates through the push and rub of each other. Once the two plates cannot contain the pressur e from the interaction, the ground shake and the two plates start to break.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
