A strong earthquake rocked the Guatemalan coast and parts of El Salvador on June 13, but no casualties or major damage have been reported, officials said. Mario Rosales, a seismologist from the National Seismology, Volcanology, Meteorology and Hydrology Agency, said the quake measured 5.4 on the Richter scale, and not 6.8 as reported earlier by U.S. seismologists. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake had a magnitude of 6.8. In El Salvador, the quake caused power cuts, suspension of mobile phone services and minor damages, the country’s National Territorial Studies Service said. Last Friday, a magnitude 6.0 earthquake shook the coast of San Salvador in El Salvador. (Xinhua)
