MILAN - An earthquake was felt across northern Italy on Friday, the second this week, though there were no immediate reports of serious damage or injuries.

The US Geological Survey said the earthquake was magnitude 5.3, and struck 35 km south-southwest of Parma. It struck at 1453 GMT, about 10 km underground, it said.

It was also felt in the cities of Genoa, Bologna, Turin and Italy's financial capital Milan.

"The table started shaking, at first I thought it was me. Then I saw the water in the bottle moving, but it wasn't that strong. People on the ground floor felt nothing," said Paolo Forlani, an employee of the Johns Hopkins university in the central city of Bologna.
