Indonesia’s Maluku Province Hit by 6.2-Magnitude Aftershock

Indonesia’s eastern province of Maluku experienced a significant aftershock measuring 6.2 on the Richter scale, following the 7.1-magnitude main shock earlier in the week. The latest seismic activity occurred at 3:45 a.m., with its epicenter on the seabed. Fortunately, there was no tsunami generated by the aftershock, according to the country’s meteorology bureau.

Despite being situated on the Pacific Ring of Fire, an earthquake-prone zone, Indonesia has often faced seismic events. While these recent quakes have been powerful, they haven’t resulted in significant damage or casualties.
