The quake occurred at 11.05am (12.05pm Singapore time) with an epicentre 69km south-west of Labuha city, the Indonesian Meteorological and Geophysics Agency said. It struck at a depth of 10km. The US Geological Survey recorded the quake's magnitude at 6.6. Indonesia sits on the Pacific 'Ring of Fire', where the meeting of continental plates causes high volcanic and seismic activity.
