Quake felt several hundred miles away in Bangkok, Thailand
An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.8 has struck central Burma.
The US Geological Survey said the quake was centered about 25 kilometers (15 miles) west of Chauk, an area west of the ancient capital of Bagan.
The USGS said some casualties and damage were possible.
It said the quake was located fairly far below the Earth's surface at a depth of about 84 kilometers (52 miles). Deep earthquakes generally cause less surface damage.
