ANKARA (AA) - A magnitude-4.5 earthquake hit Turkey’s central province of Konya, the country's disaster agency said early Sunday.

The National Disaster Management Agency (AFAD) said the quake occurred at 1.26 a.m. local time (GMT1026) in the Derebucak district at 14.76 kilometers (9 miles) beneath the ground.

There were no immediate reports of casualties.

Turkey has been hit with a series of earthquakes since the start of 2020.

A magnitude-5.4 quake Jan. 22 jolted Manisa, and Ankara was rattled Jan. 23 by a magnitude-4.5 tremor.

The worst quake took place Jan. 24 when eastern Elazig province was hit with a magnitude-6.8 earthquake which killed 41 people and injured 1,600 others.

The tremors were also felt in neighboring countries, including Georgia and Syria.
