Magnitude 6.1 quake hits western Colombia: USGS

(Reuters) - A magnitude 6.1 earthquake struck western Colombia in the Andes on Saturday but it was deep, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The quake struck 32 miles (51.5 km) northwest of the city of Tula, but it was 70.4 miles (113 km) deep, which would have dampened the shaking.
