According to the United States Geological Survey, an earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale struck the northern shore of Java in Indonesia on Friday. The epicenter of the earthquake was located around 96 kilometers to the north of Tuban and occurred at 3:25 IST.
After detecting a 594 km epicenter, Indonesia’s geological department ruled out a tsunami.
As a result of the epicenter being located 594 kilometers below the surface, the Indonesian geological agency has determined that there will not be a tsunami.
A representative for Indonesia’s Disaster Agency told Reuters that the earthquake was strongly felt in Surabaya, Tuban, Denpasar, and Semarang. Reuters said that the official made the statement.
Because the earthquake was so profound, there have been no reports of damage as of yet, according to Muhari. “I don’t think there will be any damages, but we are still monitoring.”
According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the earthquake had a magnitude of 6.5 and occurred 592 kilometers (368 miles) below the surface.
