Strong 6.0 quake hits central Myanmar: USGS

Patty Aguilar | 12 January, 2018, 21:58

"There is a low likelihood of casualties and damage", said USGS, noting that residential structures in the region are typically vulnerable to quake shaking.

There were three shallow aftershocks occurring within a few minutes, a statement from the Myanmar Earthquake Committee said.

Swe Swe Myint said, "We were sleeping, but as the building was shaking pretty strong, we all woke up in a panic".

A strong magnitude 6.0 natural disaster and a series of aftershocks hit Myanmar's central Bago Region early Friday morning, according to the Department of Meteorology and Hydrology. The epicentre was about 27km southwest of Phyu township, about 172km north of Yangon.

It was followed by two weaker tremors, both of magnitudes 5.3, the survey reported.

But after daylight broke, no major damage or casualties had yet been reported.
