Video has emerged from Mexico City of the emergency evacuation that took place on Tuesday afternoon (September 19) at the World Trade Center.

Around 1,000 people are thought to have been evacuated.

The filmer writes: "Emergency evacuation of the WTC just after the earthquake at 2:30 pm (local time). People are afraid and quite lost. They don't have WiFi anymore and they can't call anyone because of the saturated network. They were expecting orders from authorities."

Authorities dug through rubble early Wednesday following Tuesday's magnitude 7.1 quake, searching for survivors. At least 248 are confirmed dead.
