WASHINGTON - A strong 6.7-magnitude earthquake has shaken Indonesia, the U.S. Geological Survey reported on Sunday.
The USGS said the quake occurred 10 miles north-northwest of Raba, Sumbawa, Indonesia, at a depth of 11.4 miles at 3:41 a.m. local time (12:41 p.m. EST).
There was no reported tsunami warning.
An official from Indonesia's meteorology agency told Reuters there had been reports of panic in Mataram, the capital of Lombok, where a strong tremor was felt.
"We haven't got any reports of damage or injuries. Communications are not cut," said Hardiatno from Indonesia's meteorology agency.
Indonesia is situated in an area of intense seismic activity known as the "Pacific Ring of Fire".
An earthquake of magnitude 7.6 struck off West Sumatra in Indonesia on Sept. 30 and killed hundreds of people and caused massive property damage.
