Washington, Mar 21 (IANS): Malia Obama, the 13-year-old daughter of US President Barack Obama, who is on vacation in Mexico was safe after a strong earthquake there, the White House said Tuesday.

"In light of today's earthquake, we can confirm that Malia Obama is safe and was never in danger," Xinhua quoted a spokeswoman for first lady Michelle Obama as saying.

Strong tremors were felt in Mexico City and prompted residents to flee in panic from swaying buildings Tuesday as a powerful magnitude-7.4 earthquake jolted Mexico.

Calderon said neither casualties nor severe damages have been reported, adding that electricity lines and health services were working.

"It has been a strong alarm, but so far, we haven't had any victims or large damages," he wrote.
