AFP: Moderate quake hits off Indonesia, no tsunami warning15 April 2018 | 23:34 | FOCUS News Agency
The quake struck at a depth of 36.5 kilometres (22 miles), 85 kilometres northwest of Kota Ternate at 4.30am (1930 GMT Sunday), the USGS said.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said there was no tsunami threat and there were no immediate reports of damage.
Indonesia sits on the Pacific "Ring of Fire" where continental plates collide, causing frequent seismic and volcanic activity.
A huge undersea quake in 2004 triggered a tsunami that killed more than 170,000 people in Aceh province, on western Sumatra island, and tens of thousands more in other countries with coasts on the Indian Ocean.
