No damages or casualties have been reported in a moderate natural disaster of 6.0 magnitude which struck Myanmar's Bago region in the earlier hours on Friday, said a release of the Ministry of Electricity and Energy.

The quake struck around 24 miles from the town of Pyu, which has a population of just over 40,000 people.

He said there were at least four aftershocks, three measuring a magnitude 5.3 and one a magnitude 4.7.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries, said Phyu regional MP Thet Sein. The USGS said, there is a low likelihood of casualties and damage, but noted that residential structures in the region are typically vulnerable to quake shaking.

He added that they would be conducting a site survey on Saturday or soon after.

Myanmar was hit by a powerful 6.8-magnitude quake in August 2016, which killed three people and damaged temples and pagodas at the country's ancient capital Bagan.
