Powerful undersea earthquake rattled Indonesia

A powerful undersea earthquake rattled Indonesia's capital this morning, registering 7.5 on the Richter scale.

According to the US Geological Survey, the quake was centred 110km east of Jakarta at a depth of around 290km. It struck at about 8.26am (Malaysian time).

The quake, which shook tall buildings, could also be felt in certain parts of Malaysia, reports The Star.

Residents said tall buildings and houses were shaking violently. Water was sloshing from swimming pools.

Because of the earthquake's depth, there was little risk of a tsunami, said Robert Cessaro, a geophysicist at the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre in Hawaii.

None of the instruments closest to the earthquake indicated that a tsunami was triggered, he said, although he added that there were no instruments "very close" to the quake's epicentre.

The depth of the earthquake "suggests there will be no tsunami", he said, informs The Age.
