A strong 6.0-magnitude earthquake shook southern Mexico Sunday morning, sending nervous residents of the capital into the street.

The United States Geological Survey said the earthquake’s epicenter was 2½ miles (4 kilometers) northwest of Corral Falso in the southern state of Guerrero. The area sits along Mexico’s Pacific coast between the beach resorts of Acapulco and Zihuatenejo.

There were no immediate reports of damage. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said via Twitter that civil defense was checking for damage.

Mexican President Lopez Obrador posted a video of himself speaking with Guerrero Governor Evelyn Salgado in which she reassures him there is no damage and no casualties.

Residents in Mexico City said they heard the earthquake siren as the ground shook.

My first earthquake evacuation in Mexico City. A friend said to look up the siren on YouTube and be ready. If you hear that haunting sound, you have about 30 seconds to get out of the building. Thankfully we felt nothing, but how terrifying.
