It was the date, not the earthquake's strength, that caused anxiety in

As the parents of children killed when a school collapsed during the 2017 earthquake in Mexico celebrated a mass in their memory, the ground began to shake again.

“No, not again! My God, no more!” they shouted as a 7.6-magnitude earthquake hit the capital on Monday, killing two people.

September 19 has become a scary date for those living in Mexico.

Three earthquakes, on the same date, in three different years: in 1985, 2017 and now in 2022.

On the morning of September 19, 1985, an 8.0-magnitude earthquake struck the center, south and west of the country, killing around 9,500.

This year's earthquake was not as aggressive, but the date made it more frightening.
