Three people were killed and houses were damaged after a magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck off East Java province and Bali at around 2am Thursday (Oct 11). Not much damage, however, was reported, the Indonesian government said.

The three victims were the residents of Sumene p, East Java, and were asleep when their house nearly collapsed after the shallow quake, 12km underground, Indonesian disaster management agency (BNPB) said in a statement. The United States Geological Survey recorded the quake with a magnitude of 6.0.

The quake’s epicentre was 55km north-east of east Java. Indonesia's most populous Java island is right next to the main tourist island of Bali where the International Monetary Fund and World Bank annual meetings are being held this week.

"The quake didn't trigger any tsunami for sure," Ms Dwikorita Karnawati, head of Indonesia’s meteorology, climatology and geophysics agency (BMKG), told AFP.

"Wow, that was really strong and it lasted a long time," AFP reported, citing a woman named Davy who took refuge in the parking lot of a Bali hotel, several kilometres from where the IMF-World Bank annual meetings' venue.

Some guests at the hotel in Nusa Dua, south of Bali's main international airport, briefly fled outside after the strong tremor shook the building, AFP said.

Meanwhile, residents in Sumenep, East Java felt the tremors for between two seconds and five seconds, BNPB spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said in a statement released less than three hours after the quake.

Indonesia sits on the Pacific Ring of Fire, making it vulnerable to earthquakes as well as volcanic eruptions.

"Based on our analysis of the earthquake map, its corresponding intensity was felt between III and IV Modified Mercalli Intensity scale (MMI), or between light and moderate. Generally, there are not much damage impact from the quake," BNPB's Dr Sutopo said in the statement.

Last month, a magnitude 7.4 earthquake in Central Sulawesi killed more than 2,000 people and destroyed tens thousands of houses. This came after earthquakes in Lombok, east of Bali, killed more than 500.

Resident s in the affected areas in Central Sulawesi were exposed to intensity VI-VII MMI.
