One of the victims died after being crushed by the facade of a department store in the Pacific port of Manzanillo, while another was found dead at a mall.

The tremor passed without that level of tragedy, despite heightened nerves from a nationwide annual earthquake drill that occurred less than an hour before.

The tsunami alert, which was issued immediately after the quake, was revised later in the day.

Authorities said the tsunami threat has โ€œlargely passedโ€, with minor sea fluctuations of up to 0.3 metres above and below the normal tide to continue for the next few hours.

The earthquake may have been amplified by its shallow depth as it struck on Monday just nine miles (15km) below the surface.

The US Pacific Tsunami Warning Center sent out an alert to areas along the coastline, noting that waves could reach between one and three metres (three to nine feet) over tide levels.

The mayor of Mexico City, Claudia Sheinbaum, said there were no early reports of significant damage in the capital.
