Mexico City – A magnitude-5.5 earthquake rocked southern Mexico on Thursday, just minutes after the seismic alert system in Mexico City was activated, but no injuries or damage have been reported, the National Seismology Service said.
The temblor occurred at 8:24 a.m., the service said, adding that the epicenter was located at a depth of 11 kilometers (6.8 miles) and some 55 kilometers (34 miles) west of Ometepec, a town on the Costa Chica of the southern state of Guerrero.
“The constant seismic alert (system) we have went off and, fortunately, after the first inspection we gave the city … we found that there have not been any incidents as of now,” Federal District Emergency Management Secretary Elias Miguel Moreno Brizuela said.
