5.9 magnitude quake shakes Oaxaca, Mexico - USGS

The state, along with Mexico City, is still reeling from earthquakes that caused widespread damage in September and killed at least 471 people.

An quake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.9 has struck the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca, days after a more powerful tremor hit the same area, the US Geological Survey said.

The 7.2 magnitude quake which hit Mexico on Friday will not trigger a pay out from the World Bank's new vehicle 118 - 119 cat bond issued earlier this month.

The quake rocked Oaxaca state in southwestern Mexico, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS). Oaxaca is about 300 miles south of Mexico City.

The natural disaster woke residents of Mexico City, with many people running into the streets, Reuters reports.

Oaxaca state authorities opened shelters for those affected, and almost 6,000 soldiers and federal police were deployed to help with the emergency response. There are now no reports of lives lost or infrastructural damage.

The quake damaged about 50 homes in Santiago Jamiltepec, as well as the town hall and church, but no one was killed, the interior ministry said.
