    The island is located in a seismically active zone known as the Ring of Fire, which regularly suffers from powerful earthquakes followed by tsunami waves.

    According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre, the tremor was registered 210 km (130 miles) north-east of the island of Lombok, situated near the island of Bali. There is no information about any damage inflicted by the earthquake in the region. Local authorities haven't issued a tsunami warning.

    Earlier this year, a massive quake hit the island nation, triggering deadly landslides and a tsunami that killed over 430 people, injuring at least 1,500 more.
