Earthquake in Romania

A magnitude 5.6 earthquake struck eastern Romania on Saturday north of Bucharest, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The quake, initially reported as a magnitude 5.7, struck at 2:11 a.m. It was centered 149 km north of Bucharest, and 65.98 km northwest of the town of Buzau.

A magnitude 5.7 is considered a moderate quake that could inflict considerable damage but it was 56.7 miles (91.25 km) deep, which would dampen its effect.
