Earthquake strikes far off Mexican coast

By Associated Press


MEXICO CITY >> An earthquake has shaken the seabed well off Mexico’s Pacific coast.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude-6.5 quake was centered 206 miles south-southeast of Cabo San Lucas and 141 miles from Socorro Island. That volcanic island is inhabited by a small Mexican navy detachment and its waters are popular with scuba divers.

There are no reports of damage or injury.

The U.S. National Weather Service’s Pacific Tsunami Warning Center says there is no tsunami danger to Hawaii from the quake, which was centered about 3 miles (5 kilometers) deep.
