IMPACT – MEDIUM
A magnitude 8.2 earthquake struck off Mexico’s southwestern coast Thursday night, killing dozens of people and leveling buildings in coastal areas.
BAL Analysis: Companies with personnel in Mexico may wish to account for all their employees to ensure their safety. Immigration processing is expected to continue as normal, as most government offices remained open Friday. Traveling by road in Oaxaca, Chiapas and other areas that suffered heavy damage may be particularly dangerous at this time because of the possibility of landslides. Those who are traveling in areas hit hard by the quake should anticipate delays.
This alert has been provided by the BAL Global Practice group and our network provider located in Mexico. For additional information, please contact your BAL attorney.
