Mexico: 5.8 Magnitude Earthquake Strikes
A 5.8 magnitude earthquake has struck Mexico with tremors felt in the captial Mexico City, says the US Geological Survey.
There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties but power was lost in some areas of Mexico City.
Mexico City mayor Miguel Angel Mancera said on Twitter although the quake was felt strongly in the capital, "in the preliminary report, Mexico City was not damaged".
A witness said buildings, which were evacuated as a precautionary measure, also shuddered in the capital.
The epicentre of the quake was 14 miles (22km) west of the town of Jolalpan and had a depth of 33 miles (54km).
The USGS downgraded its initial measurement of the quake from 6.0 to 5.8.
An 8.1 magnitude earthquake on September 19, 1985 destroyed part of the city and killed 3,700 people, according to official figures.
Civil groups put the death toll from that powerful quake even higher, at around 20,000 people.
