Magnitude 5.6 quake hits deep below Guatemala; no damage reports

 

A strong magnitude 5.6 earthquake has shaken Guatemala, though there are no early reports of damage or injuries.

 

The US Geological Survey says the quake was 61.5 miles (99 kilometers) below the surface Sunday night. Great depths tend to lessen a quake's shaking at the surface.

 

The earthquake's epicenter was 33 miles (53 kilometers) from the Central American nation's capital, Guatemala City.
