MEXICO CITY (AP) — The Latest on Mexico's major earthquake (all times local):

8:05 a.m.

The toll of dead following Mexico City's magnitude 7.1 earthquake of last week is continuing to rise.

Civil Defense chief Luis Felipe Puente reports by Twitter that 331 are now known dead. Of those, 192 are in Mexico City.

The Sept. 19 quake also killed 74 in Morelos state and 45 in Puebla state, where it was centered. Thirteen died in the State of Mexico, six in Guerrero and one in Oaxaca.

An even stronger earthquake less than two weeks before has caused nearly 100 deaths. That magnitude 8.1 quake was centered off Mexico's southern Pacific coast.
