Mandela Effect?


I always thought that Mexico City’s earthquake in 1985 was measured at 8.2 or so. But in this reality, it was measured at 8.0, making yesterday’s quake in Mexico worse, at 8.1.

Is there any residue that the 1985 Mexico quake was, actually, worse? Yes.

Yesterday, just a few dozen people died in the quake. I read that “61 people” were killed.

By contrast, the 1985 quake killed more than 10,000 people and injured 30,000 people, and those statistics are still there. That 10,000 figure is very conservative by the way.

Apart from upgrading buildings in the business district, Mexico City looks pretty much the same as it did in the 1980s, and so the lower death toll cannot be solely attributed to better construction techniques.

How much sense does it make that a 8.0 quake kills 10,000 people and an 8.1 quake kills 61?
