MEXICO CITY: A strong 6.4-magnitude earthquake rattled southern Mexico on Thursday and was felt in neighboring Guatemala, authorities said.

The 97-kilometer-deep (60-mile) quake struck at 13:49 pm (1949 GMT) in the state of Chiapas, some 11 kilometers south of the coastal town of Tres Picos, according to the US Geological Survey.

Mexico’s civil protection coordinator, Luis Felipe Puente, said state and municipal officials did not report any damage “for the moment.”

Puente said on Twitter the earthquake was felt “moderately” in Oaxaca state and “strongly” in Chiapas and Tabasco. He said “some areas” of Mexico City in the center of the country also felt it.

USGS initially measured the quake at a magnitude of 6.6. It also revised its depth and distance from Tres Picos. –AFP
