A strong earthquake that rocked southern Mexico Tuesday was measured by seismologists in the United States at a magnitude 7.6.
The U.S. Geological Survey said in a written statement the quake was centered along the Pacific coast roughly between Acapulco and Oaxaca and was felt in Mexico City area and as far away as Guadalajara.
There were no immediate damage or casualty reports although the shaking initially appeared strong enough to cause significant damage.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii said it did not appear likely the quake would trigger a tidal wave.
