A 5.1-magnitude earthquake has just struck the Indian Ocean, 127 km southwest of Blitar, East Java, Indonesia at a depth of 60km.

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 it is believed that the earthquake did not cause any significant damage. Towns or cities that might have felt a weak shaking include Trenggalek (pop. 29,100) located 109 km from the epicenter, Boyolangu (pop. 32,300) 113 km away, Tulungagung (pop. 65,300) 118 km away, and Kedungwaru (pop. 80,300) 119 km away.
