A strong 6.6 magnitude quake struck Russia's Far East off the eastern coastline of the Kamchatka peninsula, causing no damage or injuries.
The quake hit at around 0315 GMT at a depth of 66 km (41 miles) some 50 km from Cape Ozerny, which faces the Bering Sea off the peninsula's northern edge, the local geological service was quoted as saying.

The United States Geological Survey had earlier estimated the earthquake's magnitude at 6.1.
The local emergencies ministry noted "no negative consequences" from the earthquake but provided no other details.
