A powerful 7.5-magnitude earthquake struck Mexico Friday morning. An official said there were no immediate reports of damage.

The quake struck around 9:28 a.m. local time (10:28 a.m. ET), 39 kilometers east of Petatlan, Mexico, in Guerrero state, north of the resort city Acapulco, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

It was strong enough to shake central and southern Mexico, the Associated Press reported. Shaking was reported for at least 30 seconds in Mexico City, where buildings swayed and people ran out of high-rises, the AP said.

There was no word on injuries. Luis Felipe Puente, Mexico's national coordinator of civil protection, tweeted Friday, "At the moment no reports of damages from quake."

A hotel manager in Acapulco told NBC News he hadn't found any major structural damage after the shaking.

There was a "major shift" felt at the Acapulco Princess and the Pierre Marques hotels, Thomas Becker said, but the 3,000 guests staying at the two properties were fine.

A 7.4-magnitude quake hit the same area in 2012, killing two people and damaging or destroying 30,000 homes.

In 1985, a magnitude-8.1 quake killed at least 6,000 people and destroyed buildings in Mexico City. That temblor was centered 250 miles away on the Pacific Coast.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

this site does a verbal notification when one is reported. It's been doing one about every 20mins up and down the west coast.
The most recent was a 1 in the Solomons.

What a great time to live on the East coast! When the Pacific "ring of fire" finally sets off, I'll be laughing my ass off, until it effects me of course. :headscratch:
