    Jakarta: A 5.7-magnitude earthquake rattled southeast of Bolaang Uki area in Bolaang Mongondow Selatan Regency, North Sulawesi Province, on Friday morning, albeit not triggering a tsunami.

    The epicenter of the earthquake that struck at 9:23 a.m. Western Indonesia Time (WIB) was located some 66 kilometers (km) away from Bolaang Uki at a depth of 14 km, according to the Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysics Agency (BMKG).

     



    No immediate reports were received of damages or casualties in the aftermath of the quake located at the coordinates of 0.06 degrees South Latitude and 124.40 degrees East Longitude.

    Earthquakes regularly rock various parts of Indonesia since the country lies on the Circum-Pacific Belt, also known as the Ring of Fire, where several tectonic plates meet and cause frequent volcanic and seismic activities.

    In the island of Sulawesi, North Sulawesi is one of the provinces vulnerable to earthquakes.
