6.2-magnitude quake hits Indonesia, no casualties

Jakarta, July 10 (TIWN) An earthquake measuring 6.2 on the Richter scale jolted Indonesia's North Sulawesi province on Saturday, with no immediate reports of damages or casualties, an official said.

"In some areas here, the jolts were felt, but they were not strong. So far, there are no reports of houses damaged, or people injured or killed by the quake," the official added. 

The Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency did not issue any tsunami warning as the quake did not potentially trigger giant waves. 

The quake struck at 7.43 a.m. local time, with the epicentre at 112 km southwest of Melonguane city, Kepulauan Talaud district and the depth at 10 km under seabed, it said.
