The U.S. Geological Survey put the intensity of the quake at a higher magnitude of 6.7 and said it happened at a shallower depth of 10 km (six miles).

Residents in several towns in the southwest and in central Colombia said the quake caused strong shaking, the head of the seismic detection network at Colombia’s geological service, Jaime Raisgosa, told Reuters.
