The Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) has issued a tsunami warning after a 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) on Sunday evening.

According to a statement obtained by The Jakarta Post, the agency placed the northern part of East and West Lombok on a tsunami alert, warning that the first wave to hit the region may not be the highest.

The earthquake struck Lombok at 6:46 p.m. local time, with an epicenter located 18 kilometers south-west of East Lombok.

Reports say that the earthquakes’ tremors could be felt in neighboring Bali, as well as Jember and Sidoarjo in East Java. (swd)
