BANDUNG - Monday (12/06) at around 06:15:07 pm Western region of West Java is shaken by tectonic earthquake magnitude M 6.3 SR.
Head of the Earthquake and Tsunami Center Meteorology Climatology and Geophysics Council Moch. Riyadi informs the earthquake is located at coordinates 8.36 LS-106.18 BT, precisely at sea distance 179 km southwest of Sukabumi, West Java at depth 10 km.
The result of Meteorology Climatology and Geophysics Council analysis update obtained that the earthquake is magnitude M 5.7 with a depth of 43 km.
The impact of earthquakes depicted by the Meteorology Climatology and Geophysics Council shock rate maps and reports from the community shows that in Bogor, Sukabumi, Pengalengan, Pelabuhan Ratu and Lebak are experiencing shocks on the intensity scale of II SIG BMKG (III MMI), which means that these earthquake shocks are felt by many, but Not to cause damage.
As for Jakarta, Depok & Bekasi experience shocks with a smaller intensity of I SIG-BMKG (II MMI).
The cause of this earthquake is a fault activity on the seabed near the Indo-Australian Plate subduction zone of the Eurasian Plate. This corresponds to the result of the source mechanism indicating the quake triggering the fault with the movement's dominance in the horizontal direction.
Although this earthquake occurred at sea, but the modeling results show no tsunami potential.
For that to the people on the coast of West Java and surrounding areas are encouraged to remain calm and not affected by issues that can not be justified.jo
