MEXICO — A strong 6.0 magnitude earthquake rocked southern Mexico on Sunday morning, sending nervous residents of the capital into the streets.

The United States Geological Survey said the earthquake’s epicenter was 4 kilometers northwest of Corral Falso in the southern state of Guerrero. The region lies along the Pacific coast of Mexico between the resort towns of Acapulco and Zihuatenejo.

There are no immediate damage reports. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said via Twitter that Civil Defense was verifying the damage.

López Obrador later posted a video of a live chat with Guerrero Governor Evelyn Salgado on Twitter, in which she said no damage or casualties had been reported.

Mexico City Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum said no incidents were reported in the capital.
