Earlier in the day, a 5.7-magnitude earthquake struck off the northern coast of Sulawesi Island in Indonesia.
A 6.3-magnitude earthquake has struck Sulawesi, Indonesia on 26 July - for the second time in a day, the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reports. The epicentre of the earthquake was located at a depth of 30 km (18.64 miles). There are no reports of any fatalities, injuries, or building damage having resulted from the tremor.
In January 2021, a 6.2-magnitude earthquake hit Majene Regency in the province of West Sulawesi, leaving more than 100 people dead.
​Indonesia, an archipelago made up of more than 17,000 volcanic islands, is part of the infamous 'Ring of Fire', a seismically active area in the Pacific that regularly suffers from powerful earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, caused by the collision and destruction of lithospheric plates.
