Every year, thousands of tiny tremors are recorded all over the planet, some of which are so small that they go unnoticed. However, some earthquakes are remembered throughout history for being so destructive that they leave devastating consequences.

The latest is a magnitude 7.6 earthquake which struck western Mexico on September 19, killing at least two people, damaging buildings, and knocking out power for residents of Mexico City. The quake struck on the anniversary of not one but two prior quakes which previously battered the country. Thousands of people were killed in the September 19, 1985, earthquake, and over 350 died in the quake of September 19, 2017, Reuters reports, leading locals to believe there is something "cursed" about the day.
