Earthquake In Jogjakarta At 11.12pm 7 September

After the last Earthquake in Indonesia in Tasik Malaya which weighs 7,2 on the richter scale..

A new earthquake have hit Jogjakarta, Indonesia few hours ago.

My deep consolence to those hit by the earthquake.

CILACAP: A strong 6.1-magnitude earthquake hit off Indonesia late Monday, seismologists said, but no tsunami alert was issued and there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

The quake struck at 11:12 pm (1612 GMT) at an underwater depth of 15 kilometres, south of the main island of Java, according to the US Geological Survey.

People in Cilacap, on the southern coast of Central Java, fled their houses in fear of a possible tsunami but soon returned, an AFP reporter said, adding there was no damage to homes or buildings.

Earthquakes are common in Indonesia because it sits on the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire, where several tectonic plates converge.

At least 100 people were likely killed by a major 7.0-magnitude quake that rocked Java last week, an official said earlier Monday, and over 88,000 people were left homeless.

Authorities have confirmed 74 people were killed in last Wednesday's quake, which also struck off the south coast of Java.

A 7.7-magnitude quake triggered a tsunami off southern Java in 2006, killing 596 people and displacing about 74,000.

A massive quake off the coast of the island of Sumatra in 2004 triggered a catastrophic tsunami that killed more than 200,000 people around Asia, including 168,000 in Indonesia.
