Earthquake In Indonesia


January 9, 2023


Indonesia was struck by a 7.6 magnitude earthquake on Tuesday off the Tanimbar islands, prompting panicked residents in the area to flee their homes, although a tsunami warning was lifted after three hours and initial reports indicated limited damage. The Tanimbar islands are a group of about 30 islands in eastern Indonesia’s Maluku province. At least four aftershocks were reported after the powerful quake that was also felt in some parts of northern Australia.
