Strong 6.0-magnitude earthquake shakes southern Mexico

MEXICO CITY (AP) — A strong 6.0-magnitude earthquake has shaken southern Mexico, sending nervous residents of the capital into the street. The United States Geological Survey said Sunday morning earthquake’s epicenter was 2½ miles (4 kilometers) northwest of Corral Falso in the southern state of Guerrero. The area sits along Mexico’s Pacific coast between the resorts of Acapulco and Zihuatenejo. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said via Twitter that civil defense was checking for damage. He later posted a video of a live conversation with Guerrero Gov. Evelyn Salgado in which she said there were no reports of damages or casualties. Mexico City Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum said there were no reports of incidents in the capital.
