No California tsunami warning from Myanmar earthquake
The magnitude 6.8 earthquake that hit Myanmar on Thursday was not powerful enough to generate a Pacific Ocean tsunami that would affect California, officials said.
"This earthquake is located too far inland and too deep inside the earth to generate a tsunami," according to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.
The quake hit near the Myanmar-Thailand border, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Officials said it occurred deep underground and would not produce a tsunami on the Indian Ocean either. There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.
