“However, hospitalized patients on the second, third and fourth could not be moved, so they stayed in place and are accompanied by nurses.”

The Meteorological and Climatology Agency or BMKG confirmed that the earthquake occurred off the Mentawai islands in the southern coast of Sumatra at 8:24 in the morning.

“The 5.8 earthquake did not have the potential to cause a tsunami,” BMKG Center for Earthquakes and Tsunamis Bambang Setiyo Prayitno said to the Antara state news agency. He called on the public for calm.

Indonesia sits in the so-called Indo-Pacific Ring of Fire, an area in the Indo-Pacific region that is vulnerable to volcanoes and earthquakes.
