Tuesday night central Mexico was struck by an earthquake with the magnitude of appr. 7.1, causing the collapse of several buildings in Mexico City and serious harm for the local population.
This event is the latest of a number of disasters in the recent weeks, including hurricanes and floods. Just twelve days before, the southern mexican state Chiapas got hit by an earthquake, too.
The Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team activated for all these disasters with great support of the worldwide mapping community that provided crucial base map material for the affected regions.
Disastermappers heidelberg/GIScience support these efforts with a special mapathon for Mexico City tomorrow afternoon.
