TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) recorded a magnitude of 4.6 quakes struck the west coast of Lampung today, June 6 at around 06:00 local times.
BMKG acting head Rahmat Triyono said the quake located at 6.21 south latitude and 103.56 east longitude, at the sea of 120 km south to Liwa city, Lampung, at a depth of 63 km.
“The final record showed at 06:51 with 4.8 magnitudes,” said Rahmat in a written statement today.
