Donations surge after second quake

A day after Tuesday’s earthquake in Central Mexico, the street in front of the Red Cross clinic in downtown Guadalajara teamed with gesticulating and yelling workers and volunteers, one half a human conveyor belt rapidly transferring donations emptied from a constant stream of cars swiftly backing in and out of the donation point to an army of sorters beneath a massive tent stretching several hundred feet in the opposite direction.

Quake death toll rises to 273

Rescue professionals and thousands of volunteers have been working around the clock in a major search and rescue effort to find survivors from the 7.1-magnitude earthquake that wreaked havoc in Mexico City and surrounding states on Tuesday, September 19.
