Aftershock shakes Mexico, no injuries reported | ajc.com

April 2, 2012 – Mexico was shaken afternoon by a strong apparent aftershock from a powerful earthquake late last month:

Officials said there were no immediate reports of serious damage or injuries from the quake, which had an initial magnitude of 6.3.

Office towers rocked back and forth for several seconds in the center of Mexico City after the quake at 12:36 p.m. (1736 GMT) Monday afternoon and workers evacuated their buildings and gathered in the street. The quake was barely perceptible in some other parts of the city.

Mexico City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard said via Twitter that no major damage had been reported by helicopter overflights of the city and public transport and other services were functioning normally.
