Pope Francis expressed his solidarity with the Mexican people after the earthquake of 8.2 degrees on Richter scale that shook that country, leaving a balance of more than 30 dead and about 200 wounded.

“At this moment I wish to express my spiritual closeness to all those who suffer the consequences of the earthquake that struck Mexico last night, causing death and substantial material damages,” said the pontiff.

He said that he “closely follows the development of hurricane Irma that is hitting the Caribbean, leaving in its wake large casualties and huge material damages, as is also causing thousands of displaced. I carry them in my heart and I pray for you,” he added.

Francis expressed his sentiments of solidarity at the end of the Eucharist he celebrated in Villavicencio, Colombia as part of his four-day pastoral visit, which also includes the cities of Bogotá, Medellín and Cartagena.
