The U.S. Geological Survey says a 5.3-magnitude earthquake hit southern Qinghai, China Tuesday. The quake appears to have been an aftershock from the major earthquake early last month.
This latest aftershock was just 6 miles deep. The epicenter was about 250 miles north-northeast of Lhasa, Zizang or 270 miles southwest of Golmud, Qinghai.
The earthquake hit just after 7 pm local time.
So far, no reports of injuries or damage have been received.
