GUATEMALA CITY (Reuters) - A major earthquake struck Central America off the coast of Guatemala on Thursday, shaking buildings and downing trees in the country and also causing powerful tremors in neighbouring El Salvador.

There were no immediate reports of casualties for the quake, which the U.S. Geological Survey said registered 6.8 magnitude and struck 38 kilometres (24 miles) southwest of Puerto San Jose at a depth of 46.8 kilometres.
