Mexico City Reports No Damage After 5.7-Magnitude Quake

Mexico City had no reported damages after a 5.7-magnitude earthquake shook buildings at 11:38 a.m. local time.

The epicenter of the quake was in the western state of Michoacan, 128 miles (206 kilometers) southwest of Mexico City, the U.S. Geological Survey said on its website.

Mexico City’s subway, hospitals, water system, roads and power grid were operating normally, Mayor Marcelo Ebrard said on his Twitter account.

“No news in the city, we don’t have damages,” he wrote.

Today is a national holiday in Mexico. A 7.4 temblor shook the capital on March 20, the strongest since 2003.
