It just won’t stop. This news just in from AP:
A magnitude 6.0 earthquake struck southwestern Tibet on Thursday near the border with Nepal, close to an area hit late last month by a stronger quake that damaged hundreds of homes.
There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties from the quake, which hit Zhongba county in Xigaze prefecture at 9:47 a.m. (0147 GMT), according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The epicenter was located 250 miles (400 kilometers) northwest of Nepal’s capital, Katmandu.
A spokeswoman for the Zhongba government said no injuries had been reported and local authorities were still checking the situation. The woman refused to give her name as is common among Chinese officials.
The thinly populated mountainous region is about 2,000 miles (3,200 kilometers) west of Beijing.
