Indonesia’s Malaku Island measured 7.3 magnitude earthquake

Indonesia: An earthquake measuring 7.3 on the Richter scale hit the Maluku Islands in Eastern Indonesia on Sunday, United States Geological Survey (UGCS) said.

The epicentre of the quake was registered at a depth of 10 kilometres, about 102 kilometres off the coastal town of Laiwui.

However no casualties or damage to the property was reported and also no Tsunami warning has been issued.
Indonesia is highly susceptible to earthquakes and tsunamis as it lies in the highly seismic ‘Ring of Fire’, an area in the basin of the Pacific Ocean.
