A 6.7 magnitude earthquake hit Indonesia earlier today. However, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) stressed that there is not tsunami threat in the country from the recent Indonesia threat.
“No destructive Pacific-wide threat exists based on the historical and tsunami data. However, earthquakes of this size sometimes generate local tsunamis that can be destructive along coast located within a hundred kilometers of the epicenter,” Phivolcs said in an official statement.
Phivolcs issued a Tsunami Bulletin indicating the tsunami alert level at zero. This means that there is no need for evacuation for residents living in the country’s coastal areas.
Initial reports indicated that the quake happened in the Aru Islands Region in Indonesia at 8:32 a.m. Philippine time.
