The lights could be seen flashing above Mexico City in hues of greens and white. Video uploaded from the scene shows the dramatic display.

These 'quake lights' are such a fall guy
The 8.1-magnitude quake has devastated parts of Mexico, killing at least 60 people.
They've still got the warning signs at the beach. Lots of folk walking past the signs and going for a pleasant stroll (myself included).
Pretty common with large earthquakes wether natural or triggered. Interaction between the crust and ionosphere due to piezoelectric release from stressed quartz. I remember watching the display on September 4 2010 with the ground still vibrating.
"a rare phenomenon known as earthquake lights in skies above the capital city." Genius lol
