CARACAS (Reuters) - Light earthquakes hit Venezuela on Wednesday, sending some people scrambling out of buildings in the capital city, but there were no reports of injuries or damage.

The largest quake had a magnitude of 4.5 and occurred 5.6 miles (9 km) north of Caracas at a depth of 3.7 miles (5.9 km), said the state-run Venezuelan Foundation of Seismological Research.

There was no reported impact to the OPEC nation's oil industry.
