US Geological Survey said that a 6.2-magnitude earthquake struck an area 177 km west of Port Hardy in British Columbia, Canada on Tuesday, and there were no reports of material or human damages caused by the earthquake, which occurred at a depth of one kilometer.

Two strong earthquakes with a magnitude of 6.2 and 5.7 struck in central Colombia, Canada today, but there was no immediate report of any major injuries or damage.

The epicenter of the two earthquakes was about 150 km south of the capital, Bogotá, in the central meta region, and close to the surface of the earth, amplifying their impact.

An earthquake of six degrees is considered strong and capable of causing massive losses, but the area where the earthquakes occurred is not densely populated.

The US Geological Survey said the earthquakes had a magnitude of six and 5.8. The earthquakes were felt in several cities in central and southwestern Colombia, including Bogotá.
