GUATEMALA CITY - A second strong earthquake in less than a week struck off the Pacific coast of Guatemala on Sunday, injuring one person, but there were no immediate reports of major damage.

The epicenter of the 6.2 magnitude tremor was centered 24 kilometers (15 miles) west-southwest of Champerico, near Guatemala's border with Mexico, 18.6 miles (30 km) below the surface.

"We felt it very, very strongly here," said Vinicio Saraza, spokesperson for the Red Cross in San Marcos state, a mountainous region abutting Mexico's southern Chiapas state which suffered heavy damages in Wednesday's 7.5 magnitude earthquake.
