MEXICO CITY (AP) — A magnitude-6.0 earthquake has jolted people from their beds in western and central Mexico, but officials say they've received no reports of major damage or injuries from the early morning shake.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake hit at 2:36 a.m. (3:36 a.m. EDT; 0736 GMT) in the same region as Thursday's magnitude-6.4 quake, near the town of Tecpan de Galeana along Mexico's Pacific Coast.

In Mexico City, buildings and light posts swayed and some sleepy people fled into the streets in pajamas following the sound of an earthquake alarm.
