The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the earthquake might be revised in the next few hours as seismologists review their data. Based on preliminary data it is believed that the earthquake have not caused a lot of damage.
Several towns or cities might have felt the quake. No tsunami alert has been issued so far. More details to follow.
