Strong Earthquake Shakes Indonesia
By VOA News
02 September 2009

A powerful earthquake has struck off the coast of Indonesia, triggering a brief local tsunami warning.

The earthquake struck in the waters off the main island of Java, about 200 kilometers south-southeast of the capital of Jakarta.  The earthquake had a depth of nearly 62 kilometers.

The U.S. Geological Survey initially estimated the quake at a 7.4 magnitude, but has since downgraded it to a 7.0.

The Pacific Tsunami Center in Hawaii lifted the tsunami warning after no large waves were spotted.

The earthquake caused buildings to shake in Jakarta, sending office workers running into the streets in panic.

Several buildings collapsed in the towns of Tasikmalaya and Bandung, but there are no immediate reports of any injuries or deaths.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP and AP.

    Deadly earthquake hits Indonesia

    At least seven people have been killed after a powerful earthquake struck near the Indonesian island of Java.
    Dozens of properties collapsed in the city of Tasikmalaya on the west of the island and thousands of people have been evacuated, officials said.
    The magnitude 7.0 quake also damaged buildings in the university city of Bandung, near the epicentre.
    In the capital, Jakarta, 200km (120 miles) north, hundreds fled into the streets from offices and shops.

    One eyewitness, who gave his name as Jonathan, told the BBC News website he was on the 28th floor of an office block in Jakarta when the quake struck.
    “I went into the meeting room and took shelter under the table. It went on for about a minute I think – scary.
    “It was like being in a boat on rough water, the building swaying from side to side. The doors were flapping, books fell off piles,” he said.
    And in Bandung an eyewitness told reporters: “We were all studying and the building we were in started shaking for a few minutes and the ceiling fell.”
    In Tasikmalaya, the mayor’s home and a mosque were among the properties reportedly damaged.
    The quake was felt 500km (300 miles) away in Surabaya, Indonesia’s second-largest city, and on the resort island of Bali.
    Officials said dozens of people have been injured, including at least 27 in Jakarta.
    A woman was killed when a landslide crushed her car, according to one unconfirmed report from AFP news agency.
    The US Geological Survey lowered its magnitude reading from 7.4 to 7.0 and local tsunami warnings issued soon after the quake were later withdrawn.
    In December 2004, an earthquake off the coast of Sumatra in Indonesia triggered a tsunami that killed more than 200,000 people around Asia.

    Powerful Indonesian quake kills 11; dozens injured
    By ANTHONY DEUTSCH (AP)
    JAKARTA, Indonesia — A powerful earthquake rattled a large swath of southern Indonesia on Wednesday, killing at least 11 people, injuring dozens and causing extensive damage to houses and buildings.
    The quake struck at 2:55 p.m. (0755 GMT) off the southern coast of the main island of Java with a preliminary magnitude of 7.0. It had a depth of about 30 miles (50 kilometers), the U.S. Geological Survey said. A tsunami alert was issued, but revoked less than an hour later.
    Some of the victims were killed in a rock slide near the southern coast of Java island, while the others died when houses or buildings collapsed, disaster officials said.
    Hospitals across the region were admitting scores of injured people.
    “We all ran out in panic, we didn’t even put our sandals on,” said Muharaham Ardan, a university lecturer in the town of Tasikmalaya, about 70 miles (115 kilometers) from the epicenter.
    Ardan said it was the biggest quake he had ever felt. “The neighbors were shouting: ‘Get out of the house! Get out of the house!'”
    At least 10 people died in the southern Cianjur district of West Java, and another in the coastal village of Pelabahan Ratu where dozens of buildings were severely damaged, said National Disaster Management Agency spokesman Satrio Nurhadiwibowo.
    “A dozen houses were buried by a landslide triggered by the earthquake in Jeblong village,” Nurhadiwibowo said.
    The shaking was felt over roughly half of Java island, where the majority of the country’s population of 235 million live.
    In the capital, Jakarta, more than a hundred miles (160 kilometers) away, panicked office workers ran onto the streets.
    Health Ministry Crisis Center chief Rustam Pakaya said at least 27 people were admitted to the hospital in Jakarta and the number of injured was rising.
    The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said the quake was powerful enough to cause a local tsunami, but there were no immediate reports of high waves. “Sea level readings indicate a significant tsunami was not generated,” the center later said in a statement retracting the alert.
    Indonesia, a vast archipelago, straddles continental plates and is prone to seismic activity along what is known as the Pacific Ring of Fire. A huge quake off western Indonesia caused a powerful tsunami in December 2004 that killed around 230,000 people in a dozen countries.
