7 Apr 11 - A 6.5 earthquake shook southern Mexico today, including parts of Mexico City about 366 miles (590 km) away, prompting the evacuation of schools, hotels and office buildings. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

Mexico's state-owned power company Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE), which has a nuclear power plant near Veracruz, announced that the earthquake did not damage any of its plants or cause a shutdown of any of its operations, and left unscathed its generation, transmission and distribution operations.

The power plant is several hundred kilometers northwest of the quake epicenter.
 
The quake was centered about 73 miles (118 km) from Tuxtla Gutierrez, the capital of Chiapas state, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said.
