MEXICO CITY, Sept. 21 (Xinhua) -- The death toll from Tuesday's 7.1-magnitude earthquake in central Mexico has climbed to 273, the government said on Thursday.
Half of those deaths occurred in the capital Mexico City, where nearly 40 buildings collapsed, and the remainder in surrounding and nearby states.
According to a release from the national civil protection agency, 137 people were killed in the capital Cheap Kingsley Coman Jersey , 73 in Morelos state, 43 in Puebla state, 13 in the State of Mexico, six in Guerrero state and one person in Oaxaca state.
The death toll is likely to rise as rescue operations continue and bodies are retrieved from the rubble of buildings destroyed by the quake, the agency said.
In an interview with local media, Mexico City Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera said authorities have recovered the bodies of 87 women and 50 men, including 25 minors.
"Until all hope is lost, we will continue the rescue efforts in zones damaged by the quake," Mancera posted to Twitter.
The local government Cheap Juan Bernat Jersey , he added, has declared the city to be in a state of disaster to facilitate federal funding for the reconstruction effort.
Some 5,000 residents forced from their homes are currently at 47 temporary shelters opened around the city, he said.
The number of buildings that collapsed stands at 38, while the number of buildings that sustained damaged has risen to 2,900, he said.
Rescue efforts are ongoing at 10 of 38 buildings that toppled in the capital, Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto said earlier in the day, during a visit to a town in Puebla that was hard hit.
"We will have to maintain the rescue efforts to find people who are still alive under the rubble Cheap Joshua Kimmich Jersey ," Pena Nieto said.
Experts say earthquake victims can survive up to 72 hours, or three days, without water. With the quake occurring at a little past 1 p.m. on Tuesday, that would mean the chances of finding survivors would fall considerably by that time on Friday.
The Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) announced it restored power to nearly 95 percent of regions that suffered a blackout following the strongest quake to hit the capital in three decades.
The Health Ministry said hospitals have treated 2,633 people injured in the quake, most in the capital, where 1,998 people suffered injuries.
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 22 (Xinhua) -- Officials from Guangzhou Cheap Jerome Boateng Jersey , the provincial capital of Guangdong, were in the San Francisco Bay Area to promote their city's plans to host two Fortune events later in the year.
Cai Chaolin, head of a task force from Guangzhou for the 2017 Fortune Global Forum, invited business leaders and innovators of the San Francisco Bay Area to the forum as well as to the Fortune Brainstorm Tech International.
The Fortune Brainstorm Tech is scheduled for December 5-6 and the Global Forum for December 6-8.
In Palo Alto and San Francisco, Cai and other representatives from Guangzhou, including some business executives from the city, engaged their local counterparts and talked about their perspectives on working together in the future.
It was the fourth and the last stop of the task force's U.S. tour, after New York, Washington D.C. and Chicago earlier this year Cheap Javi Martinez Jersey , and the 13th stop of its international tour to promote Guangzhou as "a hotspot for entrepreneurship."
About his stay in the Bay Area, Cai told reporters "the last (stop in the United States) is the most important," as the officials and business executives on his team have gained insight from their local hosts and confidence in their own undertaking.
"Guangzhou stands at the forefront of China's opening up and development, and technological innovation is one of the three core pillars driving us forward as a progressive city and leading business center in China," said the Guangzhou Fortune Global Forum executive committee director.
Projected to be "an innovation hub" by Cai, Guangzhou is a mega coastal city currently with a population of 16 million people and a history of more than 1,000 years. It registered a gross domestic product (GDP) equivalent of 284 billion U.S. dollars in 2016 and embraced 2,820 new technology companies, including startups Cheap James Rodriguez Jersey , from 2015 to 2016.
According to the city officials, by early September, nearly 140 of the Fortune 500 big companies around the world have confirmed representatives for the 2017 Fortune Global Forum.
Echoing the optimism, Fortune, a business magazine owned by Time Inc., said some of the world's most prominent business leaders will speak at the 2017 Fortune Global Forum and for the inaugural Fortune Brainstorm Tech International.
Confirmed speakers for the Fortune forum include Alibaba Executive Chairman Jack Ma, Baidu chief executive office (CEO) Robin Li, Foxconn CEO Terry Gou, Huawei Rotating CEO Ken Hu Cheap Franck Ribery Jersey , Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing, and Tencent CEO Pony Ma.
