LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – An earthquake has struck India today near Imphal, Manipur. The massive earthquake today registered 6.4 and struck shortly before 8:30 PM local time. There are no reports of significant aftershocks as of Friday morning Pacific Standard Time.

The quake was also significantly below the earth’s surface at fifty-five miles.
