MEXICO CITY — A large earthquake has struck in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Mexico but there are no immediate reports of damage or injuries, says the U.S. Geological Survey.

The quake, with a preliminary magnitude of 6.4, was recorded at 2:36 a.m. Friday, 262 kilometres south-southwest of the California city of Avalon and 270 km west-southwest of Rosarito, Mexico.

It was at the relatively shallow depth of 10 km.

No tsunami warning has been issued.

Several people in Southern California communities reported feeling slight shaking, says the U.S. Geological Survey. However, authorities in Los Angeles and San Diego counties say the quake wasn’t widely felt and nobody reported any damage or injuries.
