5.9-magnitude quake strikes off eastern Indonesia

JAKARTA: A moderate 5.9-magnitude earthquake struck in the Molucca Sea off eastern Indonesia Wednesday, geologists said, but there were no immediate reports of damage. The quake struck at a shallow depth of 10 kilometres (six miles) around 200 kilometres southwest of Ternate city in eastern North Maluku province, the US Geological Survey said. The quake hit at 9.50 pm (1250 GMT) and was followed by at least two aftershocks. No casualties were immediately reported. Indonesia sits on the Pacific "Ring of Fire", where the meeting of continental plates causes strong seismic activity including earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
