An extreme 7.7 magnitude earthquake hit an Indonesian island earlier today.

The natural accident, which is believed to have taken at around 3.20am, is reported to have struck 71 miles north of Maumere.

However, the American-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center is believed to have warned waves could possibly reach coasts “within 1,000kilometres of Indonesia quake centre”.

Maumere is the largest city on the north eastern coast of Flores Island.

Earthquakes which strike at this magnitude are considered to be both “major” and able to afflict “serious damage”.
