PORTLAND -- An earthquake far off the Oregon coast has not caused any reported damage.

The 5.9-magnitude quake was reported at about 3:40 p.m. on Wednesday about 160 miles west-northwest of Bandon.

Doug Gibbons of the U.S. Geological Survey says the earthquake is not related to two massive earthquakes in Indonesia on Wednesday.

Gibbons says the earthquake was about 8 miles below the earth's surface.
