A strong earthquake struck off Mexico's Pacific coast on Tuesday.

Civil Protection said there were no reports of damages or injuries.

The quake had a preliminary magnitude of 6.4 and was centered 115 miles (185 kilometers) off the coast of Jalisco state, according to the US Geological Survey in Colorado. It struck on Tuesday night at 7:33 pm (0233 GMT Wednesday).

The Mexican Seismological Service received no reports of anyone feeling the earthquake, said Leobardo Hernandez, an official with the agency. He said the quake may have been centered too far off land to be felt.

Hernandez said there was no danger of a tsunami. The Pacific Tsunami Warning center in Hawaii also reported no such threat.
