7.0 Magnitude Earthquake Occurs the Bali Sea

The EMSC reports 7.0 magnitude quake near Bali on Tuesday, Indonesia.

The earthquake epicenter was located 516 kilometers (516 miles) below the Earth’s surface, 203 kilometers (126 miles) north of Mataram, Indonesia, according to EMSC. The earthquake’s magnitude was estimated by Indonesian and US geological authorities to be 7.1, with no tsunami threat.

According to the Indonesian geological office, the quake was felt in coastal parts of Bali and Lombok just before 4am (2000 GMT) and was followed by two quakes of magnitude 6.1 and 6.5.

The Indonesian disaster agency BNPB stated that there were no early reports of damage. According to BNPB spokesperson Abdul Muhari, the earthquake should not be devastating because it was deep.

A 5.6-magnitude earthquake that struck Indonesia’s West Java province in November of last year tragically claimed over 300 lives and injured tens of thousands more.
