MEXICO CITY (AP) -- A series of earthquakes hit three regions of Mexico on Tuesday, swaying buildings in Mexico City but bringing no reports of damage.
The strongest quake hit off the state of Chiapas at 5:43 p.m. with an initial magnitude of 6.3, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
An earlier 5.7 quake was centered 85 miles from Michoacan state's capital, Morelia. A 5.0 quake struck 114 miles off the coast of Cabo San Lucas in the state of Baja California Sur.
Civil protection authorities in all three states reported no serious damage or injuries.
Many businesses were closed for a holiday in Mexico City, which has been shaken by a series of strong earthquakes and aftershocks in other parts of the country in recent weeks, and offices and streets were largely empty.
