Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said Canada is ready to help Mexico, calling the quake devastating.

The deadly quake is the second of the month; an 8.1 earthquake hit Mexico’s southern coast and left 90 people dead on Sept. 7.

Buildings shook and some collapsed. Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera said at least 44 were severely damaged by the disaster.
