By Aaron Humes: Just after five on Wednesday evening, a 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck in central Guatemala, about four hours north of Guatemala City.

According to Reuters, the epicenter was located 1.2 miles southeast of the small town of Canilla and 156 miles underground, meaning damage was minimal.

The earthquake was felt across the northern Central American triangle including Belize.

Guatemala’s natural disaster agency said there were no immediate reports of damage, while the civil protection authorities of the southern Mexican state of Chiapas said there were no injuries or damage to property.

Neighboring El Salvador said on Twitter there was no risk of a tsunami from the quake.
