At least 139 people are dead, most of those in the state of Morelos, which is just south of Mexico City. The tremors toppled buildings in the country’s capital. Video taken during the quake shows some structures simply collapsing on themselves. Rescuers are working into the night to search through the rubble in hopes of finding survivors.
