(CINCINNATI) -- A Cincinnati woman is charged with one count of child endangering after police say she left her 9-month-old baby in her car unattended.
Police say Juanita Roberts, 24, left the child in a vehicle three blocks away and out of her sight.
She will be in court again next week.
Hurricane Maria threatens Caribbean islands already wrecked by Hurricane Irma and holds the chance of a direct hit on Puerto Rico.
The earthquake struck on the 32nd anniversary of a 1985 temblor that killed thousands and came just two hours after earthquake drills were held across Mexico to mark the date.
Hurricane Maria ties for the eighth strongest storm in Atlantic history, when measured by wind speed.
Cincinnati police confirmed they are investigating a fatal crash in Carthage early Wednesday.
