A 7.5-magnitude earthquake struck southern Mexico’s Guerrero state Friday morning, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The quake occurred on the Pacific Coast between the major resort towns of Acapulco and Zijuatanejo during Holy Week, when Mexicans traditionally flock to the beaches, and resorts run at full capacity.

The quake happened at 9:27 a.m. local time (10:27 a.m. ET) about 19 miles (31 kilometers) northwest of Tecpan, Mexico, according to the Mexican National Seismological Service, which measured the quake at 7.0.

The quake shook Mexico City for at least 30 seconds, with buildings swaying as people fled high rises and took to the streets. Because of the Easter holiday, that city was less crowded than usual.

The quake’s depth at the epicenter was a shallow 30 miles (48 kilometers), the USGS said.

At least one building was damaged in Mexico City, 165 miles (265 kilometers) northeast of where the quake was centered.
Tecpan is 54 miles (87 kilometers) northwest of Acapulco.

Authorities were looking for damage and injuries. In some areas, telephone cell service was disrupted.

Much of Mexico City was destroyed and more than 10,000 people were killed in a magnitude 8.1 earthquake in 1985, but officials say they have put more safeguards into place since then.

Mayor Miguel Angel Mancerra, who was in the middle of a Good Friday news conference when the quake struck, said “protocols” were being immediately launched in the sprawling capital, which include dispatching helicopters to survey the most vulnerable neighborhoods.
