A 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck Mexico’s southern Pacific Coast on Friday, according to the United States Geological Survey. The quake was reported at 5:39 p.m. local time, shaking buildings about 225 miles away in Mexico City, where the memory of a Sept. 19 earthquake that killed more than 300 people in the capital and other parts of the country is still fresh. Friday’s tremors left tall buildings swaying for more than two minutes.

The epicentre of the quake was near the town of Pinotepa Nacional, in the Pacific state of Oaxaca. A presidential spokesman, Eduardo Sánchez, told the Televisa network two hours after the earthquake that there were no reports of deaths or injuries.

In Oaxaca, the state director of civil protection, Heliodoro Díaz Escárraga, said that homes were damaged in the town of Santa María Chimalapas and walls fell in the town of Jamiltepec.
