The strong tremor was felt in West Lampung, Tanggamus, and the Sunda Strait. Windows rattled and people rushed out of their houses in several regions, such as Liwa, Krui, Kotaagung, Belimbing, Kotajawa, Negeriratu, Marang, and Karang Brak.

On Friday, several quakes shook West Sumatra, North Sulawesi, and Malang in East Java.

The head of the Earthquake and Tsunami Mitigation Division for the Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysics Agency (BMKG), Daryono, said the quake occurred as a result of plate movement in subduction zones.
