149 lives lost as of tonight. This earthquake comes two weeks after an 8.1 hit Mexico and on the 32nd anniversary of the 8.0 quake that killed 5000+ people. The Guardian has live updates..

I hope everyone is safe.

It. Was. Bad. The worst I've ever felt.

Thanks, cooker girl. The Red Cross here has an Amazon Wish List, should you care to buy them something, but I'd much prefer people donate money to the Topos, the guys that wriggle into collapsed buildings, at great risk to their own lives, to rescue people. Their Paypal account is
Those guys are amazing. In fact, I'm going to post about them on the blue right TF now.

The quake was milder in Xalapa than last time, we had to evacuate the institute but overall not much impact here.
