Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the earthquake that simply rocked the central Mexican state of Puebla on Tuesday.
The images and footage taking social media by blizzard following the natural disaster are genuinely devastating. So far, at least five people are being reported dead, while many others remained trapped under buildings.
