Java, May 18: An earthquake of 5.6 magnitudes measured on the Ritcher Scale has on Saturday morning jolted Indonesia, as per reports of the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC).

According to ANI news reports, the earthquake has occurred around 8:51 pm (local time) with a depth of about 10 km.

However, no immediate reports of casualties and damage of properties were reported as the outcome of the quake.

The country is highly prone to severe tsunamis and earthquakes as Indonesia lies in the highly seismic “Ring of Fire” – a region in the basin of the Pacific Ocean.

A devastating earthquake which measured 9.1 magnitudes has in December 2004 struck off the Sumatra island which had triggered various strong tsunami waves in the Indian ocean, which claimed the lives of more than two lakh people in several nations, including Sri Lanka and India.
