Southeastern Mexico Shaken by 5.0 Earthquake

A magnitude-5 earthquake shook the southeastern Mexican state of Chiapas early Saturday, but without leaving any victims or material damage, the National Seismological Service said.

The institution said that before dawn and during the morning hours another six aftershocks were reported, most of which went unnoticed by local residents.

It said the temblor occurred at 11:22 a.m. and its epicenter was located at 74 kilometers (46 miles) from Ciudad Hidalgo on the Guatemala border.

Emergency management authorities have not reported any damage or human victims, but said that wide-ranging inspections of the affected area are being carried out to attend to any possible emergency.
