Magnitude 6.0 Earthquake Hits 157km Off Bali
We lost count the frequency of earthquakes in Indonesia in recent months. There are two earthquakes just happened a few hours ago. According to Herald Sun, four earthquakes struck near Kimbe in Papua New Guinea and one magnitude 6.0 earthquake just hits near Bali.
There is no tsunami alert but there are panics on the popular tourist island.
The earthquake, which began in the Bali Sea, shook buildings for several seconds.

The quake was also felt in Surabaya, the capital of East Java province, which is about 200km from Situbondo, the nearest town to the quake epicentre.
Some residents briefly left their homes in the island’s capital Denpasar, according to Reuters.
We hope there will be no more earthquakes in Bali or in that region. Some of our friends flew to Palu Sulawesi for the recovery mission now. Be safe for everyone in Bali and the rest of Indonesia.
