Guerrero, between Acapulco and Zihuatanejo, is in seismicallly active region and is often slow to give accounts of damage because of the remoteness of some communities.
Mexico City Mayor Miguel Angel Mancerra said several walls had fallen down in the Zona Rosa section of the capital but that no injuries had been reported.
“The important part is that we have no reports of injured people,” he told journalists. “We did see that many buildings were evacuated of their people, and we are continuing to survey the capital.”
