A massive 6.6 magnitude earthquake rocks Indonesia, triggering tremors near the Pacific Ring of Fire

A STRONG magnitude 7 earthquake has shaken the coast of Indonesia.

The quake, which struck at a depth of 368 miles, struck at 4:55 p.m. local time (0955 GMT).

It was felt across Indonesia, according to Abdul Muhari, a spokesman for the country’s disaster management agency.

According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC), there is no danger of a tsunami.

Mr Muhari said: “No damage has been reported so far because the quake is very deep.

“I don’t think there will be any damage, but we’re still monitoring it.”
