JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) - The U.S. Geological Survey says a 6.1-magnitude earthquake has hit off the eastern coast of the main Indonesian island of Java.
Sutiyono from Indonesia's Meteorological and Geophysics Agency said there were no reports of causalities or damage. He also said no tsunami warning was triggered. Sutiyono, like many Indonesians, uses only one name.
The temblor struck late Monday at a depth of about 10 miles (15 kilometers) about 385 miles (620 kilometers) southeast of the capital, Jakarta.
Last week, a 7.0-magnitude quake shook Java, killing at least 64 people. Rescuers are still searching for bodies, but there is little hope of finding survivors.
