MEXICO CITY, May 8 (UPI) -- A 6.4 magnitude earthquake shook southern Mexico on Thursday around 12 p.m. local time.

There were no available reports of damage or injuries.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the earthquake depth was measured at 14.9 miles.

The epicenter was approximately 60 miles northwest of Acapulco and 172 miles southwest of Mexico City.
