DUSHANBE, Tajikistan, May 13 (UPI) -- A moderate earthquake measured at a magnitude 5.7 by U.S. seismologists rumbled through the republic of Tajikistan Sunday.

The quake struck shortly before dawn about 88 miles east of the city of Dushanbe, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

Russia's ITAR-Tass news agency said emergency services officials in Tajikistan said there were no immediate reports of major damage, although the shaking was felt in much of the eastern half of the mountainous country.
