Earthquake in India: 6.4-Mag Shaker Leaves No Casualties

A sizable earthquake struck the India-Myanmar border on Friday, seismologists said. There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties.

The 6.4-magnitude tremor rattled a remote region 50 miles east-southeast of the Indian town of Imphal in the state of Manipur, and 42 miles from Kolkata (formerly known as Calcutta), the U.S. Geological Survey reported Friday in a written statement.

The area, which is more than 250 miles from the Myanmar city of Mandalay, is home to few residents.

The USGS said the temblor hit at a depth of about 55 miles at 8:42 p.m. Indian Standard Time.
