Earthquake hits Indonesia's Aceh


Indonesia has issued a tsunami alert after a 7.4 magnitude earthquake struck near the province of Aceh.
The quake struck offshore, 214km (133 miles) south-east of the provincial capital of Banda Aceh, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said.
It had a depth of 61.4km, the USGS said.
The site is very near that of the 2004 9.2 magnitude earthquake that triggered the Indian Ocean tsunami, which killed about 220,000 people.
The epicentre of the latest quake was about 66km (41 miles) south-west of Meulaboh district, an area devastated in the 26 December 2004 earthquake, Indonesia's earthquake agency said.
The quake hit at 1259 (0559 GMT).
There was thought to be no threat of a destructive, widespread tsunami, said the USGS.
"However there is the possibility of a local tsunami that could affect coasts located usually no more than 100km from the earthquake epicentre," Reuters news agency quoted the agency as saying.
Indonesia is located on the volatile Pacific Ring of Fire, a belt of tectonic activity girdling the Pacific Ocean that triggers earthquakes and volcanic activity.
Aceh is on the north-western tip of Sumatra, one of Indonesia's main islands.
Another earthquake last year killed more than 1,000 people on Sumatra.

JAKARTA: A local tsunami alert was issued after an earthquake of magnitude 7.4 struck 140 miles (225 km) south of Banda Aceh in Sumatra, Indonesia, the country's quake agency and the United States Geological Survey (USGS) reported on Sunday.

"A destructive widespread tsunami threat does not exist based on historical earthquake and tsunami data," the USGS said.

"However there is the possibility of a local tsunami that could affect coasts located usually no more than a hundred kilometers from the earthquake epicenter."

Indonesian authorities said they were still trying to get details of the quake, which happened at 0559 GMT.

"It could be felt quite strongly but we don't know if there were casualties or buildings damaged," said Subagyo, from the Indonesian bureau of meteorology's quake monitoring centre.

The Indonesian archipelago stretches across a seismically active area known as the Pacific Ring of Fire and is prone to earthquakes and volcanoes.

A 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami on Sumatra island killed 170,000 people in Aceh province alone, while more than 1,000 people died after a powerful quake hit the city of Padang last September.

Fauzi, chief of Indonesia's meteorology agency, said the closest town to the epicenter was Meulaboh, where a small "tsunami wave" just 7.9 inches high was detected by a buoy off the coast.
