Earthquakes shook Mexico City Tuesday morning, causing buildings to sway in the capital and sending thousands fleeing into the streets as an earthquake alarm sounded.

The Mexico Seismology Service measured the quake at magnitude 5.9, and said it was centered about 30 miles southwest of Pinotepa Nacional on the Pacific Coast. There are currently no reports of injuries or damage.

An earthquake struck neighboring Guatemala just hours earlier, but was reportedly so deep that it was barely felt. That earthquake was measured at 6.2 magnitude--significantly smaller than the magnitude-7.4 quake that killed 42 people last year.
