The tremors of a strong earthquake were felt in the eastern part of Indonesia on Wednesday. However, there is no news of any serious loss of life or property. According to the US Geological Survey, the earthquake had a magnitude of 6.1 and its epicenter was 65 km south-southeast of Gorontalo at a depth of 147 km in the ocean. Tremors were felt in Gorontalo, North Sulawesi, North Maluku and Central Sulawesi provinces.
Indonesia’s Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency has not issued any tsunami warning. Due to the position of Indonesia on the Ring of Fire in the Pacific Ocean, there is a high risk of earthquakes here.
At least 331 people were killed and about 600 were injured in a 5.6-magnitude earthquake that hit Cianjur city in West Java on November 21. Earlier, about 4,340 people were killed in the 2018 earthquake and tsunami in Sulawesi. On the other hand, in 2004, due to a very powerful earthquake in the Indian Ocean, more than 2 lakh 30 thousand people died in a dozen countries, most of whom were from Aceh province of Indonesia.
