According to the US Geological Survey, four earthquakes measuring up to 6.0 magnitude have hit off the coast of an Indonesian island within a day of each other.

The quakes have grown in strength, measuring 5.0, 5.4, 5.9 and 6.0 on the Richter scale. Most recently, a pair of 5.0 magnitude quakes impacted the island on Tuesday morning.

A magnitude 6.0 earthquake can cause extensive damage to buildings and residential areas.
