According to German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), a 5.7-magnitude just struck the Northern Molucca Sea in Indonesia at a shallow depth of 10km.
Since the earthquake has just occurred, the exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports.
The earthquake was most likely felt by a huge number of people located close to the epicenter, but most likely there is no significant damage to the infrastructure of the affected towns or cities. It was most likely felt in Bitung, Laikit, Tondano, Ternate, Manado and Tomohon. More details to follow.
