    Emerging video footage shows the moment a building collapses in Mexico City after a 7.1 quake struck near the Mexican state of Puebla.

    ​The powerful earthquake struck Mexico just hours after residents completed drills on the anniversary of the 1985 quake that killed thousands. According to Luis Felipe Puente, the head of National Civil Protection, at least 134 people were killed when the earthquake struck.

    The quake hit five miles from the Mexican state of Puebla, at a depth of 32 miles, according to the United States Geological Survey.
