An hour ago a strong 5.8-magnitude earthquake struck Minahassa Peninsula, Sulawesi, Indonesia at a shallow depth of 10km.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might revised later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their report.

Based on preliminary data the earthquake was felt by a lot of people located close to the epicenter. Towns or cities that might have felt a weak shaking include Luwuk (pop. 47,800) located 105 km from the epicenter and Poso (pop. 47,100) located 145 km from the epicenter.
