The quake hit at 20:40 p.m. local time, with the epicenter located 160 km northwest of Melonguane of the province, and at a depth of 10 km under sea bed, the official in charge in the agency told Xinhua via phone.

“We did not issue a tsunami warning. It was not potential for it,” he said.

Indonesia has been frequently hit by earthquakes as it sits on a quake-prone zone called “the Pacific Ring of Fire.”
