Twin quakes strike Indonesia

TWIN earthquakes struck early today off the coast of Papau, the largest province of Indonesia, the US Geological Survey said.

The first 6.6 magnitude tremor struck at 2.10am local time near the southern coast of Papau at a depth of 21.2km.

The second, measuring 7.2, struck at 2.11am local time.

Local officials warned the second quake had the potential to trigger a tsunami, AP reported.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

It rattled the town of Tual on nearby Maluku island, said Fauzi, chief of the Indonesian meteorological and geophysics agency, who had no further reports from the field.

The area closest to the epicentre is a remote, sparsely populated part of the country. It is located some 2900 kilometres east of the capital, Jakarta.

It is closer to Darwin, which sits some 900 kilometres to the south.

Indonesia straddles a series of fault lines that make the vast island nation prone to volcanic and seismic activity.
