An analyst is warning of economic disruption in Mexico's capital and other parts of central Mexico following this week's 7.1 magnitude natural disaster.

It comes less than two weeks after the strongest quake in a century hit Mexico's southern coast and left 90 people dead. Several people died at the site, but workers shouted "Yes, we can!" when a survivor was carried out of the wreckage. The quake led to the collapse of an elementary school killing scores of children. US President Donald Trump, who has courted controversy with his plans for a border wall with Mexico, tweeted: "God bless the people of Mexico City".
