Various of seismograph STORYLINE A strong earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.8 shook Romania late on Wednesday, the Earth Physics Institute said. Authorities said there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage. The quake was centred in Vrancea, 175 kilometres (110 miles) northeast of Bucharest on the eastern rim of the Carpathian mountains. It struck at 2334 local time (2034 GMT) and was felt in several other Romanian cities, including Iasi, Bacau and the capital, where it knocked out telephone service. The quake also was felt in Turkey, Moldova and Ukraine, Turkey's private NTV television reported. The Istanbul-based Kandilli Observatory's seismology centre said the quake had a preliminary magnitude of 6.5. There was no immediate explanation for the discrepancy between that higher initial reading and the Romanian estimate. On Monday, an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 4.2 struck Vrancea, where another 5.1-magnitude quake hit on September 27. The mountainous area is home to a major fault line and has seen dozens of quakes in recent years. In 1977, a 7.6-magnitude quake killed more than one thousand people in the Vrancea area when dozens of buildings collapsed.
