Earthquake hits western Mexico, felt 200 miles away

A 5.9 magnitude earthquake hit western Mexico late Sunday, powerful enough to be felt 200 miles away in Mexico City but not causing any damage or injuries, according to preliminary reports.

The quake hit off the country’s western coast, according the U.S. Geological Survey. Local authorities have not indicated anyone has been hurt or and property has been damaged, Telemundo’s Mexico City Bureau reports.

Residents in Mexico City briefly ran outdoors when the shaking began, then returned to homes and businesses shortly after, a witness told Reuters.

On Saturday a deadly earthquake hit southwestern China, killing more than 200 people and leaving rescuers struggling to search for survivors.
