The 7.6 quake struck off the coast of Indonesia, 71 miles north of Maumere at a depth of 10km, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre has said.

A tsunami warning has also been issued for the islands.

The US-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said that waves were “possible for coasts within 1,000kms of Indonesia quake epicentre.”

Hotel employees based in Tanjun Bunga Makassar near Makassar City were evacuated due to the vibration of the ground.

Indonesia is prone to quakes due to its location on the “Ring of Fire”, an arc of volcanoes and fault lines within the basin of the Pacific Ocean.
