A 6.5 magnitude earthquake strikes western Indonesia this Friday, from what is gathered the US Geological Survey.

Authorities had given a tsunami warning for some parts of Java’s coastline before the quake struck around midnight on Friday. Guess it struck more than expected. People flee from buildings in fear in many areas and Indonesian TV displayed huge traffic on roads as people evacuated coastal areas.

National Disaster Mitigation Agency spokesperson, Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, mentioned there were deaths and casualties recorded in the Ciamis region of western Java but couldn’t quickly give exact information. He also stated that buildings collapsed in the city of Tasikmalaya in western Java and in many western Java districts as reported.

It was actually centered in Cipatujah, in the western area of Java, the agency states, at a depth of 91.9km (about 57 miles).

More information to be gathered in a short period
