MEXICO CITY — An earthquake off Mexico’s southern Pacific coast shook the state of Chiapas on Friday April 15, but there were no immediate reports of damage or loss of life, emergency services said.
Mexico’s national seismological institute put the quake in the Pacific Ocean around 78 miles (125 km) south of Ciudad Hidalgo, a town on the border with Guatemala, at magnitude 6.1. No tsunami warnings have been issued.
The earthquake, which struck at 9:11 a.m. CT on Friday, was centered about 158 kilometers south of Tapachula, or 240 kilometers southwest of Guatemala City. It struck about 48 kilometers deep, making it a shallow earthquake.
The United States Geological Survey put the preliminary magnitude of Friday’s earthquake at 6.2, while Mexico’s National Seismological Center put the estimate at 6.1. Shaking was felt throughout the region in both Guatemala and southern Mexico.
Civil Protection in the state of Chiapas said there were no immediate reports of damage or casualties. The earthquake was not strong enough to produce a tsunami.
