A powerful natural disaster that struck Mexico last week has left some 2.5 million people in need of aid and killed 96 others, authorities said on Monday, as officials rushed to get food and water to afflicted communities in the poor south.
Mexico offered to deliver aid to Texas in late August, after the state was struck by Hurricane Harvey and flooding.
Murat said 1 million people in Oaxaca needed food, water, electricity and help rebuilding damaged homes, while in neighboring Chiapas state, which was closest to the epicenter of the tremor, 1.5 million people were affected, according to officials.
"This decision is due to the fact that conditions in both countries have changed and that Texas's need for assistance has fortunately diminished", read a news release from the Mexican government.
Rescuers search for survivors amid houses knocked down or severely damaged by Thursday night's 8.2-magnitude quake, in Juchitan, Oaxaca, Mexico, on September 10, 2017.
The quake was the most powerful to hit Mexico in over eight decades and was stronger than a 1985 temblor that killed thousands in Mexico City.

U.S. -Mexican relations have been strained by U.S. President Donald Trump's threats to curtail trade with Latin America's No. 2 economy as well as his demand that Mexico pay for a border wall to keep out immigrants and drug traffickers.
