MEXICO CITY, July 29 (Xinhua) -- A magnitude-6.3 earthquake jolted southern Mexico on Tuesday morning, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said.
The epicenter is located 19 km southwest of Juan Rodriguez Clara, a city in the southeastern state of Veracruz, at a depth of 95.1 km, according to the USGS.
The tremor, which struck at 5:46 a.m. local time (1046 GMT), was felt in the capital, which is over 410 km from the epicenter.
There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage. But a number of buildings in Mexico City were evacuated.
Mexico is prone to seismic activity as it sits on top of three large tectonic plates.
