Moscow, 25 Nov (ONA) --- An earthquake with a magnitude of 4.9 on the Richter scale stroke Kuril Islands located in the Russian Far East. The Geophysical Survey of the Russian Academy of Sciences stated that the earthquake occurred 208 km from Severo-Kurilsk town, at a depth of 40 km.

Casualties or material damage have not been reported yet. Earthquakes regularly strike different parts of the Pacific belt, including the Kuril Islands, due to their presence on areas where many tectonic plates meet, which causes frequent volcanic and seismic activity.
