A strong 6.2-magnitude hit southern Mexico on Wednesday, but no casualties or damage was reported.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake struck near the town of Pinotepa Nacional around 80 miles southwest of the colonial city of Oaxaca early morning. They also said the quake was as strong as magnitude 6.5 but later revised the figure to 6.2.
The earthquake shook buildings as far away as Mexico City, and in Oaxaca’s cobblestone historic center people felt the tremor strongly and guests at several hotels evacuated briefly. It awoke residents in Mexico City nearly 300 miles to the north, and cut power in some districts.
Pacific Tsunami Warning Center reported no warning or advisory in place.
