Mexico City: A 5.4-magnitude earthquake rattled southeastern Mexico today, seismologists said.

The quake was centered in the state of Veracruz, 47 kilometers southeast of Sayula de Aleman, the US Geological Survey said.

Mexico's National Seismology Service initially measured it at a strong 6.2-magnitude but later revised it to 5.6 strength.

The USGS said the quake was 145 kilometers deep, much farther underground than Mexico's preliminary measurement of 10 kilometers.
