Moderate 5.2 quake hits Indonesia

04 February 2015, Nirapad News: A 5.2-magnitude earthquake struck Timor island in eastern Indonesia early Thursday, US seismologists said, but no tsunami warning was immediately issued.

The shallow quake struck at around 4:30 am local time (2030 GMT), some 11 kilometres (7 miles) north of the city of Kupang, the US Geological Survey said.

Indonesia sits on the Pacific “Ring of Fire”, where the meeting of continental plates causes high seismic activity, and is frequently hit by earthquakes.
