Mexico Earthquake, Strongest in a Century, Kills Dozens

VideoGiant Earthquake Shakes MexicoThe country was struck by an 8.2-magnitude quake, the strongest in decades, killing at least 30 people and leveling areas in some southern states.By CAMILLA SCHICK on Publish Date September 8, 2017.Photo by Luis Alberto Cruz/Associated Press.Watch in Times Video »embed MEXICO CITY — The most powerful earthquake to hit Mexico in 100 years struck off the nation’s Pacific Coast late Thursday, rattling millions of residents in Mexico City with its violent tremors, killing at least 32 people and leveling some areas in the southern part of the country, closer to the quake’s epicenter.About 50 million people across Mexico felt the earthquake, which had a magnitude of 8.2, the government said. In the capital, the force of the temblor sent residents of the megacity fleeing into the streets at midnight, shaken by alarms blaring over loudspeakers and a full minute of tremors. Windows broke, walls collapsed, and the city seemed to convulse in terrifying waves; the quake even rocked the city’s Angel of Independence monument.While Mexico City seemed to have been spared extensive damage to infrastructure, according to the government’s preliminary assessment, the effects in the southern states of Chiapas and Oaxaca were probably more severe. The tally of damage — and death — probably will be difficult to assess initially, given that many areas are remote.Alejandro Murat, the governor of Oaxaca, told the Televisa network that at least 23 people had died in the state, and local officials said residents were buried under the rubble of buildings.Luis Manuel García Moreno, the secretary of civil defense for the state of Chiapas, said the toll there had risen to seven, and two children died in the state of Tabasco, one when a wall collapsed, the other after a respirator lost power in a hospital.The effects were also felt in Guatemala, where at least one person died and homes along the border with Mexico were leveled.Schools in at least 10 Mexican states and in Mexico City were closed on Friday as the president ordered an immediate assessment of the damage nationwide. In the hours after the quake, the National Seismological Service registered several aftershocks.PhotoDamage to a building in Oaxaca, Mexico, after the earthquake late Thursday.Credit Mario Arturo Martinez/European Pressphoto AgencyStill, the resounding feeling in the country was one, at least initially, of relief that the damage was not more widespread, given the nation’s vulnerability to earthquakes and the capital’s extreme density.“We are assessing the damage, which will probably take hours, if not days,” said President Enrique Peña Nieto, who addressed the nation just two hours after the quake. “But the population is safe over all. There should not be a major sense of panic.”Mexico is situated near several boundaries where portions of the earth’s crust collide. The quake on Thursday was more powerful than the one that killed nearly 10,000 people in 1985.While the quake on Thursday struck nearly 450 miles from the capital and off the coast of Chiapas State, the one in 1985 was much closer to the city — so the shaking, coupled with Mexico City being on an ancient lake bed, proved much more deadly.After the 1985 disaster, construction codes were reviewed and stiffened. Today, Mexico’s construction laws are considered as strict as those in the United States or Japan.After the quake hit, people in Mexico City streamed out of their homes in the dark, wearing nightclothes, standing amid apartment buildings, cafes and bars in upscale neighborhoods and dense warrens of the city’s working-class communities.

Where to Evacuate: Irma Inspires a Travel Search

By Thursday afternoon, JetBlue, American Airlines, United and Delta had all capped their one-way ticket prices out of Florida ahead of Irma’s arrival, although there were still reports of price fluctuations despite the caps.Some airlines and cruise lines have left travelers in limbo. While all cruises out of Florida set to leave Friday were canceled, some cruises scheduled to sail from Central and South Florida remain on course to depart over the weekend. Cruise companies are urging customers to check in daily as conditions evolve.As soon as Irma appeared on the radar, Dave Kartunen, a Savannah, Ga., resident, booked a hotel room 50 miles inland. “Hurricane planning has taken a certain level importance in my family,” he said. Mr. Kartunen, a father of two, has Post-traumatic stress disorder from covering Hurricane Katrina as a news anchor.“Evacuating is sort of a no good deed goes unpunished,” he said. “You don’t want to drive too far because it’s like going on a run – for every mile you go, you’re going to have to go back […]

In Beaumont, Tex., Hopscotching for Food, Water and Shelter

PhotoA flooded neighborhood in Beaumont, Tex.Credit Eric Thayer for The New York TimesBEAUMONT, Tex. — Carrie Chambliss climbed into her husband’s truck on Friday and drove a winding route some 70 miles, plowing through deep water, to get from her home in Mauriceville to a grocery store in Beaumont that had “barely anything” left.For the second day in a row, Beaumont is without running water. With the city choked off by the floodwaters that have swamped smaller towns surrounding it, its grocery stores are quickly running out of staples like bread and eggs while lines of cars snake around a park where officials were handing out bottles of water. Residents are being urged to boil their own water — if they have any.Ms. Chambliss was among the many in this part of southeast Texas who, if they had not fled for drier ground, have gone days without electricity or water. She also has not been able to get to her job, as an X-ray technician in Orange. And her family was worried about her son, who has a brain tumor. […]

Live: Hurricane Lurking in the Gulf Takes Aim at Texas

Leave town, coastal counties urge.Seven coastal counties from Corpus Christi to the western end of Galveston ordered mandatory evacuations of at least some areas. Mayor Joe McComb of Corpus Christi encouraged residents to leave voluntarily.Watch the storm intensify.Anthony Farnell, the chief meteorologist for Global News in Canada, tweeted a video Thursday of the intensifying storm.The turmoil could easily last into next week.“It is critical that users not focus on the exact forecast track of Harvey since cycle-to-cycle adjustment are likely,” the National Hurricane Center said in one of its updates on Thursday. “All locations within the hurricane and storm surge warning areas should be preparing for the possibility of major hurricane-force winds and life-threatening storm surge.”With the ultimate path of the storm uncertain, the governors of Louisiana and Texas have declared emergencies. In addition to the evacuation orders from some counties, school districts have canceled classes, and residents have been rushing to prepare their homes and businesses. — ALAN BLINDERNewsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

Call to Remove Confederate Statues From Capitol Divides Democrats

Mr. Trump has added fuel to the debate about such monuments, writing on Twitter on Thursday, “Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments.”On Wednesday night, Senator Cory Booker, Democrat of New Jersey, said he would introduce a bill to remove Confederate statues from the Capitol. But with the president plunging into the longstanding debate over the appropriate place of Civil War-era symbols in contemporary society, Mr. Schumer argued on Thursday that Mr. Trump was trying to shift the conversation away from his own response to the violence in Charlottesville.PhotoFrom left, statues of Alexander Stephens, vice president of the Confederacy and Robert E. Lee, a Confederate general, are on display in the Capitol.Credit Justin T. Gellerson for The New York Times“While it is critical that we work towards the goal of Senator Cory Booker’s legislation,” Mr. Schumer said, “we must continue to denounce and resist President Trump for his reprehensible actions.”A spokesman for Ms. […]

‘We’ve Had Enough’: Conservatives Relish the ‘Fury’ in Trump’s Talk

“It doesn’t concern me,” said Zach Lozier, who was tucking into a barbecue dinner with his family Thursday at the Morgan County Fair in Brush, Colo. “We live in the safest part of the whole country.”But for many, the fact that North Korea has developed an intercontinental ballistic missile that might be able to hit mainland America only underscored their contention that President Trump was right in confronting the Asian nation with tough talk now. And many said they did not think Mr. Trump’s language was necessarily moving the United States any closer to a nuclear confrontation in Asia: The North Korean president, Kim Jong-un, they said, seemed to be doing a fine job of that on his own.“I believe that this idiot over there is trying to make a name for himself,” said Mr. Yu’s friend Ralph Barbee Jr., 76, a Vietnam veteran and former host of a local fishing show who arrived at the Golden Corral in an S.U.V […]

With Few Wins in Congress, Republicans Agree on Need to Agree

Perhaps most important, Senate Republicans have begun to stiffen their spines against Mr. Trump, who has spent the better part of his presidency alternatively ignoring, undermining or outright denouncing the efforts of Congress to legislate. On Thursday, before leaving on a monthlong recess, the Senate set up a system to prevent the president from appointing senior administration officials to posts that require confirmation in the senators’ absence.Among its more notable successes this year, and against Mr. Trump’s objections, Congress passed a tough Russia sanctions bill with a veto-proof majority, which the president begrudgingly signed this week. Congress also approved a law to help veterans get health care — a bipartisan, bicameral, messy but ultimately successful effort that came together with zero involvement from the administration.A complicated debt ceiling fight may be averted now that Mr. Trump’s budget director, Mick Mulvaney, said on Thursday that Congress could lift the ceiling on the nation’s debts without having to make spending cuts in exchange.“There is more good happening here than people know about,” said Senator Bob Corker, Republican of Tennessee. He added that he expected further bipartisan agreement on various policy efforts now that the Senate has dropped the health care battle and Republicans are gaining momentum on a tax package that they desperately need to win. As for the role of the president in all that, “I haven’t thought about it,” he said.Indeed, most of the coming efforts in Congress run counter to what the White House has suggested ought to happen.On the health care front, many lawmakers are already busy figuring out a way to stabilize the individual health insurance market and to fund the cost-sharing subsidies that Mr. Trump has threatened to end.PhotoSenator Bob Corker, Republican of Tennessee, said, “There is more good happening here than people know about.”Credit Al Drago for The New York Times“I had Democrats bombard me right after the health care bill went down on that Friday morning,” said Senator James Lankford, Republican of Oklahoma, speaking of the dramatic 49-to-51 vote in the early hours of July 28.
