6.4 QUAKE HITS INDONESIA’S SUMATRA

0

JAKARTA:A strong 6.4-magnitude quake struck off Indonesia’s Sumatra Saturday, US seismologists said, just days after a tremor on the vast island killed dozens and left thousands homeless. No tsunami warning was issued and there were no reports of damage after the quake struck at a shallow depth of just 23 kilometers off the southwest coast of the vast island, said the US Geological Survey. The epicenter was close to the remote archipelago of Mentawai. In 2010, a 7.7-magnitude quake triggered a tsunami that left more than 400 people dead on the island chain.
