(KGTV) -- An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.4 shook the far southern end of Mexico Monday afternoon, according to the United States Geological Survey.

The earthquake shook an area six miles away from Cuajinicuilapa, Guerrero, Mexico around 1:15 p.m. PST.

The earthquake swayed some tall buildings in Mexico City, according to Reuters.

The earthquake comes days after a 4.5 magnitude earthquake shook areas of Mexico just south of San Diego’s border with the country.

That earthquake hit about 67 km northeast of Camalu, Mexico on the Baja California peninsula around 7:17 a.m. Saturday.

No injuries or damages were reported as a result of the quake.
