A 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck Mexico’s Southern Pacific Coast on Friday, according to the United States Geological Survey.

The quake caused buildings to shake in the capital of Mexico city, about 350km (217 miles) away.

A presidential spokesman, Eduardo Sánchez, told the Televisa network two hours after the earthquake that there were no reports of deaths or injuries.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center reported that “based on all available data … there is no tsunami threat from this earthquake.”
