MEXICO CITY - A second strong earthquake to strike western Mexico in the space of nine hours has caused no casualties or serious damage, according to initial reports from authorities.
The magnitude 6.9 quake off the Baja California peninsula in northwest Mexico struck early on Thursday morning in a sparsely populated region, and Alfredo Escobedo, head of emergency services in Baja California state, said no damage was reported.
A similar quake in the same area in 2008 did not cause any serious problems either, Escobedo added.
