Powerful 6.8-Mag Quake Rocks Indonesia

A powerful undersea earthquake struck Indonesia's eastern coast on Tuesday. There were no immediate reports of damage or a tsunami.

The 6.8-magnitude quake was about 60 miles west of Ambon, the capital of Maluku province, the U.S. Geological Survey said on its Web site. It was around 25 miles under the Banda Sea, it said.

Residents in Ambon fled homes and offices when the quake struck, witnesses said.
