The latest 6-magnitude aftershock in quake-devastated Sichuan Province did not incur any casualties, local authorities said Sunday.
The aftershock jolted two townships in Jiangyou City, northern Sichuan, at 1:08 a.m. Sunday, causing cracks in the mountain and seriously damaging roads. One of the crevices runs 300 meters.
Jiangyou is situated near Beichuan County and Mianyang City, which are among places hardest hit by the May 12 magnitude 7.8 earthquake.
