Indonesia hit by magnitude 6.2 quake
The eastern part of Indonesia was hit by a magnitude 6.2 earthquake Friday, the U.S. Geological Survey told The Associated Press.
It hit about 6:30 a.m. about 33 kilometers south of Tolotangga, which is about 1,350 kilometers east of Jakarta, the nation’s capital, the AP said. The temblor was about 72 kilometers deep.
The quake caused many residents to pour out from their houses, the wire service reported. But there were no immediate reports of damages or casualties.
No tsunami warning was issued, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
Indonesia was hit by a deadly 2004 quake and tsunami that killed 230,000 people in a dozen countries.
