An earthquake with a magnitude 6.9 struck the Banda Sea off Indonesia on Friday. The earthquake was registered to happen at a depth of 640 km (398 miles) according to the EMSC.

No alert was triggered for a tsunami in the Indian Ocean region in view of the relative weakness of the earthquake, said the monitor Tsunami Service Provider Indonesia.

Indonesia, which sits on the Pacific’s seismically active “Ring of Fire”, has suffered deadly earthquakes and tsunamis, Reuters reports.
