After two years of the suspension of the National Drillthe 13 thousand 860 loudspeakers of the CDMX Command, Control, Computing, Communications and Citizen Contact Center (C5) resounded throughout the capital.

Provoking nerves to some, alerting others and curiosity to the rest is justified, since the exercises that are carried out are part of the strategy of the government of the Republic Mexican It is used to make the population aware of the protocols that must be followed in the face of these events.

How many buildings were damaged?

According to local authorities, at least twenty-one estate they turned out damaged for him movement telluric which was reported a few minutes after the evacuation of the buildings was carried out. In 17 buildings there were slight risks, while the rest must receive urgent attention.

Blame the drill

Through social networks, on television and radio programs, some people related the 7.7 Richter earthquake with various supernatural or energetic aspects.

According to these versions, the movement on the Earth It would have been due to a presumed “seismic memory” in the national territory or due to the intensity of the thoughts of the people who “called” the earthquake.

Do thoughts influence earthquakes?

Gerardo Suarezresearcher of Geophysics of the UNAMassured that the chances of an earthquake being repeated on the same day for the third time is an unprecedented event, but it is only a coincidence.

The expert stressed that this fact has been analyzed by various specialists and many have given their interpretation of how unlikely it is that this phenomenon will be repeated just on the anniversary day of the past.

“I am a scientist, I believe in science, there have been many drills since 1985”, is the phrase with which the scientist denied the rumors related to the “power of thought”.

He said you must believe in evidence scientific and that up to now there is no serious and verifiable effort to link the earthquake registered last September 19 with the exercises of evacuation that were carried out.

collective psychosis

The expert assured that there is no cause and effect relationship between actions carried out by human beings and the development of telluric movements.

“It generates collective tension and respect and fear when we remember dates like September 19,” he said about the predisposition that citizens have for these phenomena to occur this month.

He assured that millions of people are in that tuning with this season of the year, so they expect tremblebut this is not reasonable.

The expert indicated that this dynamic collective it is not enough to influence what happens in the subsoil 30 or 40 kilometers deep, so the public can rest easy, since the only thing that has happened on September 19, 2017, 2022 and 1985 is just a coincidence .

However, he stressed that this type of movement could have impacted the activity that occurred in the Volcán de Fuego and Popocatépetl, due to a fluctuation between the tectonic plates.


You have to listen to the warning
