(CNN) -- A magnitude-6.4 earthquake hit the Pacific Ocean off the northern Philippines Sunday morning and was felt as far as southeastern Taiwan, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

The epicenter was about 50 miles (80 kilometers) west of Basco, the capital of the Batan Islands in the Philippines and about 340 miles (550 kilometers) south of Taipei, Taiwan.

No injuries, deaths or damage were immediately reported, said Manny Torres of the National Disaster Coordinating Center in Manila, Philippines. The center put the earthquake at a 6.3 magnitude.
