A strong 6.1-magnitude earthquake struck early Monday in the Mediterranean between Morocco and Spain, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said.

The shallow quake hit at 4.22 a.m. 62 kilometres north of the Moroccan city of Al Hoceima and 164 kilometres east-southeast of Gibraltar, USGS said. It was followed by a 5.3-magnitude tremor.

In its initial assessment of the quake’s impact, USGS said there was “a low likelihood of casualties and damage.”
