A 6.4 magnitude earthquake hit Argentina's west San Juan province
Agostina Montaño, a CNN en Espanol reporter based in San Juan, reported a “strong” quake which knocked everything off the shelves in his home.
According to preliminary data from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre (PTWC) the earthquake struck at a depth of about 12.5 miles.
However, the centre added there is no tsunami warning at this stage.
There are no reports of any casualties thus far.
The initial earthquake was followed by a number of powerful aftershocks.
Around 20 minutes after the first quake a 5.0 magnitude aftershock hit south-west of Nueve de Julio, about 620 miles from the original tremor.
This was followed by 4.9 and 5.3 magnitude aftershocks.
The earthquake was also felt over the border in Chile including in Santiago, the nation’s capital.
