A dangerous M6.5 earthquake hit the island of Java, 0km ESE of Cipatujah on December 15, 2017. When you look at the map from USGS below, you understand that the powerful quake was felt across wide parts of the island as well as on others situated nearby. A few minutes after the publication of the earthquake on USGS, more than 400 people reported feeling the rumble and hearing loud booms (earthquake booms). Luckily, the earthquakes wasn’t shallow and hit at a depth of 57.1 miles (91.9 km). BMKG has called a tsunami warning for the Indonesian coast, but GDACS has no Tsunami report. Due to the depth and the limited magnitude the probability of a tsunami is very limited. Pictures and videos of damages are currently being uploaded on social networks. Here are the first I was able to find.
