4.6-magnitude quake trembles EcuadorLate in the night on Monday light damage to buildings on the outskirts of the Ecuadoran capital Quito was caused as a 4.6-magnitude earthquake hit the area. However, there were no immediate reports of casualties, officials said.

 

Seismologists said the quake, which struck shortly before midnight, was centered about 10 kilometers (six miles) northeast of Quito and had a depth of some five kilometers (three miles).

 

“At present, minor damage has been reported to some homes” outside Quito, the city’s mayor Mauricio Rodas said in a tweet, adding that some neighborhoods also reported power outages.

 

The small South American nation is still in the process of recovering from a devastating 7.8-magnitude temblor that killed 673 people in April and left around 6,000 injured.
