Five people died in a magnitude 6.7 earthquake that occurred on Monday morning in northeastern India, 29 kilometres west of the city of Imphal, the capital of Manipur state, according to the US Geological Survey.

A further 33 have been reported injured, home ministry spokesman Kuldeep Singh Dhatwalia told CNN.

He added that there was some damage to residential and government buildings in Imphal.

The temblor was centered in an isolated area. Imphal itself has a population of more than 250,000. Emergency crews from a variety of agencies responded quickly to provide relief and rescue, Dhatwalia said.

Another tremor, measuring 3.6, was recorded five hours later.

The quake, which took place about 55 kilometers underground, originally was reported as 6.8-magnitude but that was later revised to 6.7 magnitude, USGS said.
