    My father is a civil engineer and he was in the army when the big earthquake happened in Thessaloniki (Greece, which I assume that while corrupt, is less corrupt than Mexico?), he knows of several apartment buildings that got marked for demolition after the earthquake and not one of them went down (and there were very few repairs on those marked yellow). What killed people is corruption, not the earthquake. A decent building code that is adhered to would have saved those lives.
