Chinese earthquake that severely shook northern Myanmar and jolted China's southwestern province of Yunnan. The Yunnan earthquake bureau measured the tremor at 7.3 on the Richter scale, but the Hong Kong Observatory measured the Myanmar quake at 6.5. The official said Yunnan recorded the quake 5.46 a.m. (2146 GMT Wednesday), five minutes earlier than the time that Hong Kong recorded the Myanmar tremor. An official said the epicentre was 140 km (85 miles) north of the Myanmar town of Myitkyina. The Hong Kong Observatory put the epicentre 170 km (105 miles) north of the town, which is around 1,000 km (600 miles) from Yangon, the Myanmar capital. There were no immediate reports of casualties in China because the areas most affected were along the border between the two countries which were difficult to reach, the official said.
