Mexico earthquake death toll surpasses 200

Desperate searchers shouted “quiet” and listened for faint voices in the rubble where a Mexican school once stood, as rescuers used trained dogs and their bare hands to reach any survivors of Tuesday’s magnitude-7.1 earthquake that killed at least 217 people.

The powerful earthquake struck near the town of Raboso in Puebla, about 76 miles southeast of Mexico City, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. By Wednesday, the death toll stood at 217 after the quake toppled homes, schools and apartment buildings.
