SORONG, NNC - An earthquake measuring 4.0 on the Richter Scale shook Kaimana Regency, West Papua Province on Tuesday (12/5/2017), at 05.37 am (WIT), with a depth of 17 kilometers.

Head of Geophysics Station of Meteorology, Climatology, Geophysics (BMKG) of Sorong Andri W Bidang in Sorong, Tuesday, stated the location of the earthquake is at coordinates 4.31 South Latitude and 134.42 East Longitude which is 101 km southeast Kaimana.

He explained in terms of the depth of its hypocenter, the earthquake that occurred was a kind of shallow earthquake due to plate collision.

The spreading of earthquake vibration is felt by all residents of Kaimana Regency region. Residents in multi-story buildings can feel the effects of the earthquake.

He said the earthquake had no tsunami potential, as its power was not large enough to generate changes in the ocean floor that could trigger a tsunami.

He said to date there has been no reported damage caused by the earthquake in the Kaimana sea.

"We appeal to the coastal communities not to be hooked on issues that are not responsible because the earthquake is not a potential for tsunami," he said.
