An earthquake has jolted parts of central Mexico, shaking buildings in the Mexican capital while sending anxious residents out into the streets in the quake-prone country but there were no immediate reports of damages.
The earthquake on Thursday afternoon registered a 5.8 magnitude, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS).
Its epicentre struck the central state of Puebla, south of Mexico City, at a depth of 44km, according to the USGS.
There were no immediate reports of damage in the capital, Mexico City Mayor Marti Batres wrote in a post on social media, and no reports of damage in Puebla either, according to state's governor.
Earthquake alarms blared throughout Mexico City, sending people running out of businesses and homes.
Manuel Maldonado was driving in the capital's central Anzures neighbourhood when the alarm sounded and traffic stopped. He said he could feel his car shake.
"This one's strong. For it to move the car, it's strong," he said.
