Strong quake hits Indonesia

JAKARTA (AFP) – A strong 6.0-magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of eastern Indonesia on Monday, US seismologists said, but no tsunami warning was issued and there were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.

The undersea quake hit about 190 kms north-east of Maumere, a holiday destination in Flores, at 9:13 a.m. local time at a depth of 522 kms, said the US Geological Survey.

Indonesia’s disaster agency said officials were checking to see if the quake had any impact.
