A 6.0 magnitude earthquake hit Guatemala and El Salvador Monday morning but authorities did not report damages or victims, according to Reuters.
The earthquake was centered 60 miles southeast of Guatemala City, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It struck at around 9:40 a.m. local time, the Latin Press reported.
We felt a tremor that was a bit strong. We are monitoring the area but there is no damage here. It was a light movement that lasted for a few seconds, said Luis Medina from the Guatemalan tourist office in Puerto Quetzal, on the south coast, Reuters reports.
Authorities in El Salvador said that the earthquake shook the buildings in the capital city. Although no damages were registered, the quake caused panic among Salvadorians, the Latin Press reports.
