Powerful quake rocks Myanmar, killing at least 3

A powerful 6.8-magnitude earthquake that struck central Myanmar on Wednesday killed at least three people and damaging buildings and monuments, authorities said.

The quake's epicenter was located in an area west of the ancient capital Bagan and took place about 52 miles below the Earth's surface, the U.S. Geological Survey said. Deep quakes typically cause less damage than shallow ones.
