Indonesia-quake Indonesia rocked by powerful quake, tsunami warning called off
Jakarta, Sept 28 :Indonesia was struck by a powerful 7.5 magnitude earthquake Friday, the US Geological Survey said, but there were
no immediate reports of deaths or injuries.
The country’s national disaster agency briefly issued a tsunami warning before cancelling it.
The strong quake hit central Sulawesi island at a shallow depth of some 10 kilometres (six miles), just hours after a smaller quake
killed at least one person in the same part of the country.
The latest quake was a higher magnitude than those that killed hundreds on the island of Lombok earlier this year.
Friday’s tremor was centred 78 kilometres north of the city of Palu, the capital of Central Sulawesi province, but was felt some 900
kilometres south in the island’s largest city Makassar.
