Puerto Escondido earthquake

(Reuters) – A moderate earthquake rocked Mexico’s Pacific coast early on Saturday close to the popular beach resort of Huatulco and was felt as far away as Mexico City, but no damage was reported.

The epicenter of the 5.5 magnitude quake was close to the surfing hotspot Puerto Escondido, but also shook the capital 240 miles to the northwest, Mexico’s national seismological service said.

“People have called to say they felt it but we haven’t received any reports of damage,” said Yanet Antayhua at the monitoring center.
