A 7.3 magnitude earthquake has struck the coast of Indonesia, according to an Indonesian government agency.
The Bandea Sea was hit by the quake, with a depth of 214 kilometers.
Eyewitnesses said, “It was so strong, everyone panics and ran through the emergency exit stairs. I was on the eighth floor.” Others describe it as having a “long, wavy feel.”
It came hours after another one quake hit Abepura in Papua, while another weaker quake struck the tourist island of Sulawesi, says Earthquake Report.
The epicenter of the earthquake was off the coast of Chiba prefecture, adjacent to Tokyo, the agency said, adding that a tsunami warning had not been issued.
