Deadly earthquake: The biggest earthquake to hit Mexico in a century struck the southern states of Oaxaca and Chiapas last week, killing some 100 people and prompting the government to rescind its offer of aid to U.S. victims of Hurricane Harvey. The magnitude-8.1 quake and multiple aftershocks demolished thousands of homes. The town of Juchitán was especially hardhit. “Everything that I worked so long for is gone,” shop owner Benito Chinas, 83, told the Associated Press. “At my age how am I going to start over?” Meanwhile, directly north, Hurricane Katia made landfall in Veracruz state along Mexico’s Gulf coast, knocking out power to tens of thousands and dumping heavy rain; two people were killed in a mudslide.
