KONTAN.CO.ID - MENTAWAI. A magnitude 5.6 earthquake jolted the Mentawai Islands in West Sumatra on Sunday afternoon, but no tsunami alert was issued following the quake, the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) has reported.

BNPB spokesperson Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said the epicenter was 38 kilometers southwest of Mentawai Islands and around 22 km beneath the seabed.

The earthquake rocked the islands, a favorite among surfers, at 3:56 p.m., and strong vibrations lasted for several seconds. No damage or casualties have been reported so far.

In 2010, a magnitude 7.2 earthquake caused a tsunami on the islands--displacing more than 2,000 families living on three affected islands. South Pagai was the worst-affected island, with 900 families having to be relocated.
