    Another tremor jolts Kendari

    Another tremor, measuring 5.2 on Richter scale shook Kendari, in Southeast Sulawesi, on Monday at 7.25 a.m..

    The epicenter of the quake was situated 16 kilometers southeast of Kendari, at a depth of 20 kilometers below sea level.

    Antara reported that thousands of residents fled the town seeking higher ground amid rumors of a tsunami, following the quake.

    The Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysic Agency (BMKG), however, urged the residents to remain calm.

    “Please, don’t fall for rumors,” BMKG coordinator Adi said as quoted by Antara.

    “The agency, as the official institution [issuing tsunami warnings], found data indicating the potential for a tsunami to occur in this area, and did not issue a tsunami warning.”
