Southern Mexico was hit Monday by a strong earthquake with a magnitude 6.3, seismologists in the United States said.
The quake hit along the Pacific Coast in the Oaxaca region, and was centered 17 miles from Ometepec and 210 miles southeast of Mexico City.
The U.S. Geological Survey said in a written statement the quake occurred at 12:36 p.m. Mexico time.
There were no immediate reports of damage; however, a 7.4-magnitude quake in the same area March 20 shook buildings in the capital and sent scores of office workers into the streets.
It was not known immediately if Monday's temblor was an aftershock of last month's event.
