The quake hit 106 kilometers north of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy, the capital city of Russia’s Kamchatka Krai.
The earthquake was followed by at least seven aftershocks, Kamchatka’s Geophysical Service said. Five of them measured 2.0 and above and the remaining two 4.5 and 5.2, according to a spokesman.
However, there have been no immediate reports of serious damage or casualties. No tsunami warning has been issued.
Rescue crews are searching and inspecting buildings, TASS quoted an emergency services spokesperson as saying. “There have been no reports of damage yet,” Yulia Ananyeva said. She added that the buildings in the area were built to withstand a magnitude 9 quake.
