Strong 6.4-Magnitude Earthquake Hits Off Bali

A STRONG 6.4-magnitude earthquake has struck off the Indonesian resort island of Bali early today, but there was no tsunami warning and no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

The quake's epicentre was at a shallow depth of eight kilometres, the US Geological Survey said, putting it 278 kilometres south of Denpasar, on Bali. The quake hit at 2.23am (4.23am AEST).

Indonesia sits on the Pacific "Ring of Fire" where continental plates collide, causing frequent seismic and volcanic activity.
