Until now 358 casualties have been confirmed and the federal government has declared the catastrophe as an “extraordinary emergency”. Because of this, local authorities have been given access to emergency funds.

The team, that includes RUBAU GROUP professionals in Mexico, also worked on rescuing and aid to the affected by using oxycutting devices and 12 welders were taking away the rubble.
