JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — A strong earthquake has hit off the western coast of Indonesia's Sumatra island and triggered a tsunami watch.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the 7.5-magnitude temblor struck at a depth of 20 miles (30 kilometers) and is centered on a small island off the coast of Sumatra, where a massive earthquake and tsunami hit in 2004.
A tsunami watch was issued for Indonesia, saying waves were possible within a few hundred miles (kilometers) of the epicenter. However, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said historical data suggest any wave it created would not be destructive.
