MEXICO CITY (AP) - Some jangled nerves but no damage are reported from a moderate earthquake that shook Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, late Wednesday.

Preliminary readings in the U.S. and Mexico put the strength at 4.9 to 5.2.

People in the Pacific resort poured into the streets but a state civil protection official says there was no damage, in his words: "just a bit of alarm in the community."
