MEXICO CITY — A 5.7 magnitude earthquake rattled southern and central Mexico on Thursday. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

Workers at some Mexico City office towers temporarily evacuated their buildings, but quickly re-entered after the swaying stopped.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake occurred around 8:30 a.m. local time and was centered near the city of Huajuapan de Leon in southern Oaxaca state, about 140 miles southeast of the capital.

The federal civil defense agency said there were no immediate reports of incidents.

On Sept. 19, a magnitude 7.1 earthquake damaged or destroyed hundreds of buildings and killed 228 people in Mexico City and 141 others elsewhere.
