MEXICO CITY  — Power outages hit the Mexican capital of Mexico City on Sunday after an earthquake struck the center of the country, and officials said there was no other damage reported.

Some restaurants and residential buildings in the capital were evacuated as a precautionary measure, they said.

Buildings shuddered in the city, a Reuters witness said.

The U.S. Geological Survey downgraded its initial measurement of the quake to magnitude 5.8 from 6.0.

The epicenter of the quake was located about 14 miles west of Jolalpan in southwest Mexico, which is about 76 miles south of Mexico City.
