Strong Earth Quake Hits Indonesia

A strong 6. 4- magnitude earthquake hit off the Indonesian island Sumatra on Sunday but there was no tsunami risk, seismologists said as panicked residents fled their homes.

The quake hit at a depth of 35 kilometres ( 22 miles) at 10:08 am ( 0308 GMT ) 73 kilometres west of Bengkulu , according to the United States Geological Survey .
“ The earthquake was quite strong and shallow , it was felt all the way to Padang, West Sumatra , but there was no threat of a tsunami, ” Mochammad Riyadi , an official at Indonesia ’ s meteorology and geophysics agency said.
He said officials were checking if there were any casualties or damage.

Bengkulu resident Neng Hasnah said the quake felt very strong for a few seconds , forcing her and her family members to flee her house.
“ I was carrying my seven -month old granddaughter and I had to run, all the neighbours also ran outside their homes, ” Hasnah said.

Indonesia sits on the Pacific “ Ring of Fire” where tectonic plates collide, causing frequent seismic and volcanic activity .
An earthquake struck Indonesia’ s western Aceh province in December 2016, killing more than 100 people , injuring many more and leaving tens of thousands homeless .

  1. God please protect this people and make this earthquake stop. It wants to become a weekly occurance. And I do want to thank You for Nigeria and Africa as a whole.. bcuz we already have enough earthquakes as senators and governors.

    1. Teddy am telln u.weve had enough earthquakes as senators and governors here

  2. One thing I'm always thankful to God for for Nigeria. Even if there is hardship, corruption and what not in Nigeria, we are far from these strange natural disasters. The only natural disaster we suffer is flood but due to carelessness and could be work on. God, please save ur people in Indonesia and I pray there are no casualties.

  3. God will not allow earthquake to occur in Nigeria with fake building materials people re using for house building millions of people will die cus no house will left standing
