Mexico natural disaster: Crews keep searching for victims

Cruz belongs to a social collective and said that when the shaking began, she was riding in a truck carrying supplies to victims of the earlier quake.

She says so far bosses are saying the building is fine.

Many residents been traumatised by the second major quake to strike Mexico City in their lifetime.

The cupola of Our Lady of Angels Church split in half Sunday evening and crashed to the ground, but nobody was hurt.

Mancera also said Saturday night on Twitter that almost 17,000 people have been "attended to" at 48 shelters, though it's not clear how many of those are being housed there.

A system of quake sensors was set up in 1993 along the Pacific coast, where tremors are more common.

Highlighting the confusion that still reigned two days after the quake, one story that gripped the world's attention turned out to be false: that of a girl supposedly trapped alive beneath the rubble of a school that collapsed in Mexico City. We have not received any news.

Allegations of negligent construction and poor oversight began to fly on Monday after deadly building collapses during Mexico's quake, as hope faded of finding more survivors of a disaster that killed more than 300 people.

Saturday's seismic movement is one of the 4,287 aftershocks of the magnitude 8.2 natural disaster on September 7, the most powerful since 1932, and whose epicentre was off the coast of the southern state of Chiapas. They must sift through fragile piles of rubble that can pose a danger of collapsing anew.

"The families are still hopeful, but we psychologists are starting to prepare ourselves to counsel them in the context of mourning", said Penelope Exzacarias. For the past two days, the balance has only changed compared to the capital, where there are still some landslides and work is still being done to rescue potential survivors.

The number of missing has fallen from 200 in the initial count to 42 people who may still be trapped under the rubble of collapsed structures, Puente said.

The latest death toll stands at 320, of which 182 of the fatalities were recorded in Mexico City.

Thousands of professionals and volunteers work frantically at dozens of wrecked buildings across Mexico City looking for survivors of the powerful quake that hit Tuesday.

Members of a Japanese search and rescue team cradled the white schnauzer dog and petted its head as they brought it down from the wreckage.

Mancera told Mexican television Saturday that rescue attempts would continue, with crews concentrating on eight collapsed buildings around the capital in search of an estimated 30 people who could still be alive in the rubble.

"In Tlalpan, there is still a possibility of finding people alive".

The toll from the powerful magnitude-7.1 quake that rocked Mexico earlier this week has risen to 292, the national emergency management chief has said.
