A stronger earthquake measuring 7.7 on the Richter magnitude scale rocked Central Sulawesi shortly after a 6.0-magnitude quake killed one and injured at least 10 people in Donggala, Central Sulawesi, on Friday afternoon.
The Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) had issued but quickly revoked a tsunami warning after the strong earthquake occurred at 5:02 p.m. Jakarta time, only a few hours after the first earthquake.
The USGS website shows a 7.5-magnitude quake.
National and Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said in a release on Friday that the quake hit the area about 27 kilometers north east of Donggala, at a depth of 10 km.
The earthquake was larger in magnitude than the 2006 Yogyakarta earthquake, which measured 6.4 in magnitude, and the recent 7.0-magnitude Lombok earthquake in August. (evi)
