A 6.2 magnitude struck a relatively unpopulated stretch of the Pacific coast of Mexico's Baja peninsula Tuesday.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake happened about 8:40 am local time offshore near the village of Vicente Guerrero.

The town is about 270 kilometers south of the border city of Tijuana.

Unlike Tijuana and Ensenada, that stretch of coast has little development.

Mexico's civil defense agency discounted any possibility of a tsunami.

Baja Gov. Marina del Pilar Avila said there appeared to be no danger to residents or visitors.
