6.1 earthquake rattles Mexico

MEXICO CITY — A magnitude 6.1 earthquake shook Mexico City today, its epicentre located in the poor southern state of Guerrero, the United States Geological Survey said, but there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

Buildings swayed for around a minute in Mexico City, and several offices evacuated staff.

The epicentre was 11 miles northwest of the town of Ayutla de los Libres, the USGS said, inland from Mexico’s Pacific coast and the popular tourist resort of Acapulco.

It said the tremor struck at a depth of 21.6 miles. The USGS initially reported the quake at 6.4 magnitude, but then revised down the reading.

Mexico City Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera said on Twitter that there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage in the capital. (Reuters)
