MEXICO CITY (AP) -- A moderate earthquake has rattled Mexico, but no major injuries or damages have been reported.

The U.S. Geological Center has given the quake a preliminary magnitude of 5.8. It was centered 96 miles (154 kilometers) north of Acapulco.

Sunday's quake caused office buildings to sway and sent many frightened residents into the streets of the capital, Mexico City.

Helicopters immediately clattered overhead searching for damage.
