(Associated Press) SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) —A magnitude-6 earthquake shook the capital city of Costa Rica on Friday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The quake was felt strongly in San Jose but there were no immediate reports damage or injuries, said Juan de Dios Castillo, spokesman for Seismological and Volcanic Institute. He said there were reports of fallen objects but none of major damages to buildings.

The quake's epicenter was 17 milesnorthwest of San Jose, according to the geological survey. Castillo said it hit near Santiago de Puriscal, a province west of the capital. It struck about 4:48 p.m. local time with a depth of about 44 miles.

On Jan. 8, 2009, a 6.1 quake in central Costa Rica killed at least 20 people. A 5.9-magnitude quake shook the country in October 2010.
