(CNN Spanish) — An earthquake of magnitude 7.6 shook Mexico this Monday, according to reports from the United States Geological Survey (USGS, for its acronym in English).

The seismic focus was located at a depth of 10 kilometers and the epicenter was located 42 kilometers north-northwest of La Placita de Morelos, Michoacán.

The earthquake was also felt strongly in Mexico City.

The National Seismological of Mexico recorded it with a magnitude 7.4.

It is the anniversary of the two earthquakes that hit Mexico City and other locations hard in 1985 and 2017.

In 2017, shortly after noon Morelos, Puebla, Mexico City, the State of Mexico, Guerrero and Oaxaca felt an earthquake of magnitude 7.1. It happened after another earthquake of great intensity was registered that same month, on September 7, with a magnitude of 8.1. And in 1985, one of the most devastating earthquakes for Mexico occurred, leaving some 10,000 dead.

The head of the Government of Mexico City, Claudia Sheinbaum, said on her Twitter account that so far no damage has been reported in the country’s capital and reported that five condors fly over the streets of the city. For his part, the Secretary of Citizen Security of Mexico City, Omar García Harfuch, said that so far there had been no “relevant damage.”

The president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, gave the preliminary report of the National Seismological from the courtyard of the National Palace and said: “We wish with all our hearts that nothing serious has happened.”
