Mexican authorities report the death toll following an 8.1 magnitude earthquake last Thursday now stands at least at 96.

Oaxaca was the worst-hit state where the five other deaths were reported. Oaxaca Governor Alejandro Murat told a Mexican television network that his state has 76 of those 95 deaths.

The other 19 deaths were in the states of Chiapas and Tabasco. Between the earthquake and Hurricane Katia, Mexico's Foreign Relations Department had to withdraw an offer of aid for Houston, following Hurricane Harvey, as the nation has to focus on its own recovery from two back-to-back natural disasters.

CBN Mexico and CBN's International's Disaster Relief team have been on the ground in Chicapa de Castro, Oaxaca, the heart of one of the areas that sustained the most destruction and damage.

The team served at least 500 meals and volunteer nurses gave medical care and medication to those who needed it. They also provided special care and aid to the elderly.

CBN Mexico reports at least 324 schools were damaged by the quake and many residents were without power for three days. The disaster relief team prayed with victims of the quake as they served them hot meals. The staff also shared the love of Jesus with them.
