0

MEXICO CITY: A 5.8-magnitude earthquake struck central Mexico early Sunday, so far without any casualties or damage reported, officials said. The quake struck just after midnight local time (5:19 a.m. Manila time), east of the city of Huitzuco, in Guerrero state, at a depth of about 30 miles, according to Mexico’s National Seismological Service and the US Geological Survey. The officials downgraded the tremor’s magnitude from an initial report of 6.0 on the Richter scale. Although the quake was felt strongly in the capital, “in the preliminary report, Mexico City was not damaged,” Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera wrote on his Twitter feed.
