6.1 magnitude quake strikes off Indonesia's West Sumatra
An undersea earthquake registering 6.1 on the Richter scale struck Monday morning on the western coast of the Indonesian island of Sumatra, but there were no immediate reports of injury or damage, the Indonesian seismologist agency said.


The quake struck at 6.10 a.m. and was centred in the Indian Ocean, 73 km southwest of Bintuhan in Bengkulu province, Indonesia's National Meteorology and Geophysics Agency said.


The event occurred 57 km beneath the seabed.

There were no immediate reports of structural damage or injury.

A strong 6.2 earthquake has struck in Vanuatu, shaking buildings and scaring tourists but causing no significant damage.
The United States Geological Survey says the undersea quake hit 29 kilometres west of the capital Port Vila at a depth of 51 kilometres.

Re: 6.1 magnitude quake strikes off Indonesia's West Sumatra
TWO strong earthquakes hit almost simultaneously at both ends of Australia's region this morning, in Vanuatu and Indonesia.

But it is more likely co-incidence than a geological factor which caused two quakes in such quick succession, according to Geoscience Australia.

An earthquake measuring about 6.2 on the richter scale hit  Vanuatu just after 9 a.m. (Melbourne time), frightening tourists, while another measuring 6.2  struck Indonesia's largest island of Sumatra about 10 minutes later.

The Vanuatu earthquake did not cause any serious damage, nor did the Sumatra quake, Geoscience Australia said.
