Indonesian authorities issued a tsunami warning after a powerful earthquake struck the Molucca Sea between northern Sulawesi and northern Maluku.

According to the Phys, the US Geological Survey said the epicenter of the 6.9 magnitude quake was 185 km southeast of Manado at a depth of 24 km.

A chart published by the Indonesian Geophysics Agency predicted waves of half a meter to parts of northern Sulawesi and northern Maluku, while the quake caused panic in the city of Ternate in the Maluku chain of islands, where people fled to high places away from their homes.

It is noteworthy that Indonesia is subjected to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions and tsunami because of its location on the “ring of fire”, a arc of volcanoes and fault lines in the Pacific basin.
