Strong Quake Jolts Mexican Coast

The coastal region of west-central Mexico was rocked yesterday evening by a magnitude 6.4 earthquake, centered offshore, approximately 130 miles SW of Manzanillo, in the state of Jalisco.

Fears that the undersea temblor would generate unusual wave action caused officials to issue a tsunami warning, but no abnormal conditions have been reported, and, according to on-site reporters, no major damage occurred ashore.
