JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia has lifted a tsunami warning issued after a powerful quake struck waters off its eastern coast.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the 7.0-magnitude quake hit early Thursday more than 195 miles from Manado, the northernmost city on Sulawesi island. It says it had a depth of about 20 miles (30 kilometers) beneath the ocean floor.
The country’s local geological agency issued a tsunami warning, but lifted it about an hour later.
It was not immediately clear if the earthquake caused any injures or damage.
Indonesia is prone to seismic upheaval due to its location on the so-called Pacific “Ring of Fire,” an arc of volcanos and fault lines encircling the Pacific Basin.
