The U.S. Geological Survey said the tremor occurred 24 kilometers (about 15 miles) under the surface. Its epicenter was 93.4 kilometers (60 miles) southwest of the Salvadoran coastal town of Acajutla.

Carlos Lopez Mendoza of the Salvadoran Red Cross said officials had checked throughout the affected area without finding any indications of problems.

"It was a long, swaying, but gentle earthquake," he said.
