MEXICO CITY – The U.S. Geological Survey says an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.6 has hit in the Gulf of California.
It says the earthquake struck Sunday at 1:14 p.m. local time at a depth of 10 kilometers (6 miles). The epicenter is 37 miles (59 kilometers) south-southwest of Topolobampo, Mexico.
Mexico, which lies on three tectonic plates, is one of the world's most seismically active regions.
This story has corrected the depth of the earthquake to 10 kilometers, not 10 miles.
