7.1-magnitude quake strikes Indonesia
No injuries or damages have been reported following the 7.1-magnitude earthquake
The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake struck offshore Tuesday morning, with the epicentre 236 km northwest of the city of Saumlaki. The quake was reported at a depth of 155 km.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said it was not issuing a tsunami warning because the quake was too deep to trigger a tsunami in the Indian Ocean.
The quake hit at 1653 GMT (1:53 a.m. Tuesday local time).
Indonesia is located in the Pacific "Ring of Fire,'' where earthquakes and volcanic activity are common.
