    Authorities estimated the quake at magnitude 7.5, which struck at East Nusa Tenggara in the Flores Sea.

    It was an undersea earthquake the centre said while noting that the chances of casualties were low. Recent earthquakes have caused secondary hazards such as tsunamis and landslides that may have contributed to losses.

    Indonesia experiences frequent volcanic eruptions and quakes due to its position on the Pacific Ring of Fire, an act of intense seismic activity where tectonic plates collide that stretches from Japan through Southeast Asia and across the Pacific Basin.
