A 6.4-magnitude earthquake that shook Albania early this morning was felt throughout Serbia, but no damage has been reported so far, according to the Seismological Survey of Serbia.

Deputy Director of the Seismological Survey Branko Dragicevic told Tanjug that the earthquake, that killed at least six and injured 300 people (in Albania) was particularly felt in the territory of Kosovo and Metohija.

"The earthquake was felt all over Serbia, especially in the southern Serbian province (Kosovo), all the way to Belgrade. It is estimated that more than 10 million people in the region have felt this tremor," said Dragicevic.

According to the Survey, the majority of calls they received came from Belgrade, Vranje, Kragujevac and Jagodina.

People in Serbia were woken up by the earthquake.
