Strong 6.4 quake rattles Indonesia

There were no immediate reports of damage or tsunami warnings issued.



Jakarta: A strong 6.4-magnitude
earthquake struck near the coast of Indonesia`s Papua province
on Sunday, geologists said, but there were no immediate reports of
damage or tsunami warnings issued.

The quake struck at a depth of 36 kilometres (20
miles), 161 kilometres from Enarotali, at 9:16 pm (local
time), the US Geological Survey said.

There was no warning or advisory posted on the Pacific
Tsunami Warning Centre website.

Indonesia sits on the Pacific "Ring of Fire", where
the meeting of continental plates causes high seismic
activity, and is frequently hit by earthquakes.
