A 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Indonesia’s Java island on Friday, January 14, 2021 causing buildings to shake in Jakarta, the capital city.
The strong and relatively shallow quake struck at 0905 GMT (4.05pm Jakarta time) at a depth of 37 kilometers (23 miles).
The tremor was felt in the capital and rattled buildings. No tsunami warning was issued. Pandeglang district in Banten Province was the most heavily hit.
Due to its location on the Pacific “Ring of Fire,” an arc of severe seismic activity where tectonic plates meet that runs from Japan to Southeast Asia and throughout the Pacific basin, Indonesia experiences numerous quakes. [KhaleedTimes]
