Mexico hit by 6.1 magnitude earthquake

Updated September 23, 2017 10:43 AM EDT

Two more earthquakes have rattled the southern part of Mexico on Saturday, according to CNN.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the new earthquake that rattled Mexico on Saturday had a magnitude of 6.1 and was centered in the southern state of Oaxaca.

CNN reported that Mexico City did not appear to have significant damage.

The 6.1 magnitude earthquake occurred less than a week after a 7.1 magnitude temblor hit the capital of Mexico.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a 6.2-magnitude earthquake rattled southern Mexico Saturday.

This time, the U.S. Geological Survey said the temblor was centered about 12 miles southeast of Matias Romero in the state of Oaxaca. That same region saw the most damage from an 8.1-magnitude quake that hit on Sept. 7.

This comes just days after a 7.1-magnitude earthquake hit central Mexico, killing at least 295 people.

It is unclear whether this latest quake caused any damage or injuries.

The latest quake did, however, sway buildings and set off a seismic alarm in the capital, prompting civil defense officials to temporarily suspend rescue operations in central Mexico.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
