Strong Earthquake Rocks China

BEIJING (February 12, 2014) A magnitude-6.8 earthquake rocked China's far western region of Xinjiang Wednesday, the U.S. Geological Survey said, but it’s not clear if it caused any damage or casualties.

The China Earthquake Networks Center measured it at magnitude 7.

A police officer in the area says he felt tremors shaking the police station and ran outside.

The USGS says the earthquake was centered 168 miles east-southeast of Hotan at a depth of 7.7 miles.
