Strong earthquake shakes southeast Siberia, no casualties

A strong earthquake shook a sparsely populated section of southeast Siberia on Friday, but no casualties or damage was reported, a spokesman for the Ministry of Emergency Situations said. The quake's magnitude was between 5 and 6, said ministry spokesman Viktor Beltsov. Seismologists at the Hong Kong Observatory recorded the quake's magnitude as 5.8.

Quakes of that magnitude are capable of causing significant damage, the AP says.

The quake's epicenter was in a sparsely populated area about 1,000 kilometers (600 miles) southwest of Yakutsk, the largest city in the area, Beltsov said. Yakutsk is about 5,000 kilometers (3,000 miles) east of Moscow.
