Major Earthquake Hits Off Indonesian Coast

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) - A magnitude-7.7 undersea earthquake rocked eastern Indonesia early Saturday, the U.S. Geological Survey said. There was no danger of a tsunami.
The earthquake occurred about 120 miles south of Moluccas, the USGS said. It occurred at a depth of 212 miles.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said no destructive tsunami threat existed.

That region of our world has experienced several earthquakes and disasters within a year or so. On Jan 2nd I reported also on earthquakes and mudslides there since then if not mistaken more have occurred.
