Bali rattled by yet another earthquake

For the second time in two days, Bali has been rattled by a 5.2 earthquake. 

While yesterday’s struck 111 kilometers southeast from Bali’s Klungkung regency, the one today had an epicenter 42 kilometers east off the coast of Sumbawa island. 

With a depth of 207 kilometers, today’s quake hit at 11:08 am local time and did not trigger a tsunami warning, according to the Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG). 

Residents most likely to have felt the earthquake in Bali would apparently be in the Gianyar and Badung regencies. 

Another earthquake rattled Bali on Feb. 8, a 4.9 coming from East Java

The big concern at the moment for earthquakes in Bali is whether or not they will set off landslides.

Landslides in Kintamani, Bali last week took the lives of at least 12 local residents.
