0-Magnitude Earthquake Hits Myanmar's Southern Region

USGS said that although buildings in Myanmar are usually vulnerable to earthquakes, casualties and damage are unlikely in this case since so few people live near the epicenter.

An quake of 6.0 magnitude hit Myanmar's Bago region in the early hours of Friday, China's Xinhua news agency reported, citing the Meteorology and Hydrology Department.

The Meteorology Department later reported an additional aftershock and said the last one, a magnitude 4.6, struck at 10:46 a.m.

"It was a shallow quake and so most people near the area felt it", said Ko Tun Lin Kyaw.

No immediate reports of casualties are available on Friday.

The epicenter was located in a sparsely populated region between capital Naypyidaw to the north and commercial hub Yangon to the south, at least 150 kilometres from each other.

About 70 quakes jolted Myanmar in 2017.
