The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude-6.5 quake was centered 206 miles (333 kilometers) south-southeast of Cabo San Lucas and 141 miles (227 kilometers) from Socorro Island. That volcanic island is inhabited by a small Mexican navy detachment and its waters are popular with scuba divers.

There are no reports of damage or injury.

The U.S. National Weather Service's Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has not posted any warning or advisory for the quake, which was centered about 3 miles (5 kilometers) deep.
