A major earthquake shook a building in Mexico City, nearly 200 miles away, near the Pacific resort city of Acapulco on Tuesday night.

According to the US Geological Survey, the preliminary magnitude of the quake was 7.0, centered around 17 kilometers northeast of Acapulco.

There were no immediate reports from the seismic zone.

In Mexico City, the ground shook for nearly a minute in some parts of the capital, but less noticeable in others. Some people temporarily evacuated their buildings, but most soon returned inside on a rainy night.

Mexico City officials said electricity had been knocked out in some areas, but there were no early reports of serious damage to the city.
