A four-magnitude earthquake in Richter's scale was felt in some regions in El Salvador on Sunday, especially in the department of Usulutan, 117 kilometers from this capital.

The earth tremor was reported at 03:52 hours, local time, on Sunday, and its epicenter was located 10 kilometers deep, off the coast of that region. No material damage or human victims were reported.

El Salvador is in a highly-seismic region due to the volcanic chain that is part of the Pacific fire belt, which runs along the country's territory.

Another earthquake-generating source is a system of geological faults that run from northwest to southeast on Salvadorian territory.
