Earthquake rattles Indonesia, tsunami warning issued
 
( Jakarta, Sep 28, 2018):A strong earthquake, measuring 7.7 on the Richter Scale rocked central Indonesia off Sulawesi island on Friday. A tsunami warning has been issued.

The US Geological Survey said that the quake's depth was 10 km and the epicentre was situated 56 km northeast of the central Sulawesi town of Donggala. This is the second earthquake to strike the region in a day. So far, no report of damage or casualty have been announced yet.

Earlier on Friday, a 6.1 magnitude quake shook the area, killing at least one person and injuring 10 others. Dozens of houses collapsed in the tremblor.

In July and August, a series of powerful earthquakes struck Lombok island, claiming over 550 lives.

Indonesia is situated in the Ring of Fire, an area in the basin of the Pacific Ocean, which is vulnerable to frequent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

In December 2004, a powerful 9.1 magnitude quake off Sumatra island triggered strong tsunami waves in the Indian Ocean, killing over two lakh people in dozens of countries, including India and Sri Lanka.
