Moderate earthquake shakes Mexico City

MEXICO CITY- A magnitude-5.3 earthquake rocked Mexico’s Pacific coast on Tuesday, causing buildings to sway as far away as Mexico City and frightening residents.

No major damage or injuries were immediately reported.

The quake was centered along the coast of Guerrero state, briefly cutting off electricity and telephone service to the resort city of Acapulco, the state-run Notimex news agency reported.

The earthquake was the third to rock the region in two days.

Two quakes – the first a 5.4-magnitude, the second a 4.4-magnitude – rattled Acapulco early Monday. There were no reported injuries or damages.
