From the earthquake in Mexico, woke up the volcano Popocatepetl”

At least 37 people were killed when Enrique Rébsamen elementary school collapsed in Mexico City.

The tragedy came less than two weeks after a massive 8.1-magnitude quake hit Mexico on September 7 and killed almost 100 people.

The epicenter was near Raboso, a town in the state of Puebla, but could be felt 76 miles away in Mexico City.

It struck just two hours after the country held a national natural disaster drill, as it does every year on the anniversary of the 1985 quake, which killed at least 10,000 people.

President Enrique Peña Nieto said 22 bodies were found in the debris of an elementary school in Mexico City that collapsed due to the quake. While another 30 children are believed missing, volunteer rescue crews discovered a girl inside the rubble Wednesday morning.

The Associated Press report that dozens of buildings have collapsed so far, including more than 40 in Mexico City alone.

"It was disgusting", a student at another school in Mexico City told WSJ about the moment her school felt the natural disaster.

At least 225 people died as a result of the quake, which the U.S. Geological Survey said had a magnitude of 7.1. The new disaster also comes just 12 days after a magnitude 8.2 quake struck the country, setting a record for Mexico's strongest quake. "We're going to go to a building that fell to see if we can help". "We are with you and will be there for you", the president wrote on Twitter.

People left their homes and offices and were in severe denial of returning back into structures, in the fear that they may collapse at any moment.

Heather Wurtz, a graduate of Hayden High School, has lived in Tapachula near Mexico's southern boarder for more than a year, said her mother, Karen Wurtz.
