Deep 6.1 magnitude earthquake strikes Argentina, USGS says

A major earthquake of 6.1 magnitude struck in Argentina, 69 miles (111 km) east southeast of Santiago del Estero at a depth of 340 miles (550 km), the US Geological Survey said.
The quake occurred at 4:46 a.m. (0746 GMT) on Monday. A quake of that magnitude nearer the earth's surface could cause severe damage in a densely populated area.
Santiago del Estero is in north central Argentina and has a population of about 245,000.
