A strong magnitude 6.5-earthquake just struck 136km north of Xining, Qinghai, China at a shallow depth of 10km.
The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports.
Based on preliminary data, damage to infrastructure is most likely. The city of Xining with a population of 767,000 people located 140km from the epicenter of the quake most likely felt the moderate shaking of the quake. There are yet no reports of any injuries and damage to the infrastructure but we will be updating as more information is received.
