Indonesia issued a tsunami cautioning on Friday night. The notice lasted some two hours and sent individuals living along the coastal region escaping to higher ground, according to Reuters news reports.

The solid earthquake was felt in Jakarta, the capital, and individuals surged out of elevated structures.

The organization said individuals who took to higher ground, including around 1,000 taking asylum in the gubernatorial office in the Lampung territory, had returned home.

The tremor annihilated 34 houses and made minor harm to many different structures, the organization said.

The United States Geological Survey (USGS)  put the focal point in the Indian Ocean around 227 km (141 miles) from the city of Teluk Betung on Sumatra.
