Earthquake up to 7.2 hits Myanmar-India border

According to GEOFON Global Seismic Network, the tremor was estimated at 7.2, while USGS reported a 6.9 earthquake in the area.

The quake’s epicenter was some 100km (62 miles) from the city of Monywa in Myanmar, according to USGS.

A witness cited by Reuters reported strong tremors in the eastern Indian city of Guwahati.

Tremors were also reportedly felt as far away as India’s former capital, Kolkata.

Buildings have been evacuated in Kolkata.

Sirens could be heard blowing on some streets in the former capital, with people sounding alarm to alert residents of high-rise buildings, India’s NDTV reported, citing eyewitnesses.

There was no danger of a tsunami, NDTV said. But people have come out into the streets, fearing an aftershock, it added.
