Quake of magnitude 6.7 hits eastern Indonesia
SYDNEY (Reuters) - An earthquake measuring 6.7 magnitude hit eastern Indonesia near the Aru islands on Friday, said the U.S. Geological Survey.
The quake, which was originally measured at 6.9, struck at a depth of 33 km (20 miles), 80 km (50 miles) north-northwest of Dobo on the Aru islands, said the USGS.
The U.S. Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said a destructive widespread tsunami was not likely to be generated by the earthquake, but that there was a small possibility of a local tsunami.
