A powerful 7.3 magnitude earthquake hit a remote part of eastern Indonesia this Monday, June 24, 2019.
The quake struck at a depth of 208 kilometers (129 miles) south of Ambon island in the Banda Sea at 11:53 local time, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS).
In a report from PhilStar, The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said the quake was too deep to provoke a destructive wave.
As of writing, there are no reported casualties after the quake.
However, tremors are felt in the northern Australia, City of Darwin. Nine News Darwin said on Twitter that they felt the shaking for several minutes.
CNN reported that there was no tsunami threat in Australia.
Australia is in the south of Indonesia, the world's biggest archipelago nation, which is usually hit by quakes.
Indonesia experiences numerous seismic and volcanic activity because of its position on the Pacific "Ring of Fire".
Meanwhile, in a previous report by KAMI, 6.7 magnitude quake struck Japan last week causing minor injuries and immediate evacuation.
