Earthquake jolts Bangladesh for second consecutive day
DHAKA, Aug. 12 (Xinhua) -- A moderate earthquake measuring 5.3 magnitude on the Richter scale was registered by the Dhaka Seismic Center in Bangladesh's capital Dhaka at 04:43 a.m. local time (GMT2143) on Wednesday morning.
It is just a day after a mighty quake with a 7.6 magnitude struck the Indian Ocean off India's Andaman Islands early on Tuesday morning, which was also felt in Bangladesh.
Ayesha Khatun, a meteorologist of the Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) told Xinhua the epicenter of the earthquake on Wednesday morning was located near Myanmar and India border region and the distance of the epicenter was 416 km east from Dhaka.
Khatun said there is so far no report of casualties.
On Tuesday, the epicenter of the powerful quake with a 7.6 magnitude which struck the Indian Ocean, was some 980 km from Dhaka.
Following Tuesday's earthquake, the country's meteorological department issued a tsunami warning for coastal areas for hours.
