Here is the earthquake report - like apex wrote it. Since when are 6.0 "moderate" quakes? I guess, next year, 8.0 will be "minor" quakes...just
like our good apex would describe them.
Moderate quake strikes Indonesia's Sumatra
Sun Nov 11, 2007 12:39am GMT
JAKARTA (Reuters) - An earthquake measuring 6.0 on the Richter scale struck Indonesia's Sumatra island on Sunday, but there were no reports of
casualties or damage, the meteorology agency said.
The epicenter of the quake lay 129 km southwest of Bengkulu at a depth of 10 km. There was no tsunami warning. The tremors were followed by a 5.7
Bengkulu was hit by a powerful quake of magnitude 8.4 in September that killed at least 25 people and toppled thousands of homes. It has been jolted
by frequent tremors since then.
Indonesia suffers frequent earthquakes as it is on an area of intense seismic activity in the "Pacific Ring of Fire."
